Gent Lumen a having been shown in certain late papers a publication under the signature of Quot a Sui Lerer Quot which originated somewhere in the North or East and which purports to contain a True account of the burning of the Quot Ben Sherrod Quot i conceive it to be a duty to my std and the Public to Point out tiie falsehoods and contradictions in it and at tie same to Iii to ask of you a a i a Vor that you will suggest to editors the propriety of not publishing such articles without the name of the author. The dil Lerent papers differ Aslo for instance the Quot Baltimore Patriot Quot says the s. B. Ben Sherrod Quot left new Orleans in the 5th of May 1837. Saturday was the 1837. But it May be said that the Dale i Elbe easily mistaken. The Quot Ben Sherrod Quot left on sunday which could not be mistaken for saturday by any sober Man. The Maysville Eagle says that the Quot Ben Sherrod Quot left on sunday the old of May 1837. Sunday was the 7th of May 1837. These things arc Small to be sure but the Man who pretends to know so much about an occurrence As the Quot Sert a Quot does Shodd certainly know on what Day he had the misfortune to lose his Quot two Sisters and one tie Quot sufferer Quot then proceeds to show How the Quot Ben Sherrod Quot got so Many passengers by saying that there were but few Fine boats running. The truth is All the passenger ats the Quot Sultana Quot the Quot ambassador Quot the to Mediterranean Quot and in fact nearly All the Fine boils of every description were plying and none of very few of them were full of passengers. The Quot surf err puts More passengers on Board the Ben Sherrod than there were people on Board including Crew and passengers by say 50 persons there not having been on Board More than 150 souls in All. The sufferer has certainly never been up or Down the Mississippi As he makes the boats Ben Sherrod and Prairie a the shortest dates 1 can find in the different prints from Sut iday at 10 o clock until tuesday night at 10 o clock to get to fort Adams not More than 30 hour s run for a slow boat and if he makes sunday the 6lh, i do not know How he can make tuesday the 9th of the same month. But to leave the dates without any further notice we vill take his narrative itself. He says Quot that the Sherrod had a heavy freight on Board and several horses and carriages on the now gentlemen the Ben Sherrod Quot had not one horse on Board of her any where nor one Carriage either unless it was boxed up and not put on the forecastle at All. And still the sufferer goes on to Tell of a the dashing to and fro of the horses on the forecastle groaning audibly for pain of the devouring element i Connot think that the writer Means his piece for the truth he must have intended it As a Mere romantic sketch or trial of his Powers. The writer makes us Burn up on the morning of wednesday the 10th, As he would Call it when in reality we were burned on the morning of tuesday the 9lli. He says too that when the Ben Sherrod stopped at fort Adams the Prairie passed her. The truth is the Prairie passed us Tjit last time about 40 Miles below fort Adams before dark at a Wood Yard and when we came to fort Adams and stopped our engine to Send out the yawl which was the Only Stop we had to make we could not even hear the Prairie she was so far a head. With regard to a barrel of whiskey having been turned out during the evening it is not the truth we gave our men liquor because we could not help it and because it is the Best method we have of keeping them within Bounds. I have tried to get along without giving my Crew liquor. Two or three boats have tried the same Experiment but have Frimd As Long As there Are Coffee houses and grog shops along Shore the Best method is to give them their liquor on Board where we can control them for if they Are not allowed liquor on Board As soon As they come to a Landing place they will either slip off to the Little grog shops or get the deck passengers to go for them and smuggle liquor on Board and they Are then most Apt to get intoxicated. Not Only that but when 1 had not liquor for them they would go into the hold of the boat and Lap the casks on freight and when people have to sea lieu or they Seldom fail to get drunk. I do not mean by this that the Crews on the Western steam boats Are not generally sober men they Cert vainly Are so. There was not any Wood in front of the furnaces where the sufferer pretends to say the Wood pile a log ight fire. The firemen live to stand in front of the furnaces to work and the heat that would ignite the Wood would certainly be Apt to drip them Way. Again he tells quite a singular Story of some one having heard a conversation Between a negro on Shore and a hand on Board. When a Large steam boat is running it is impossible to hear any thing that is said by any one on Shore without stopping her engine. But nov comes the hero Quot a was swimming to the Shore with All my might endeavouring to sustain a Mother and child he goes on to Tell of his having saved that child. For god s Sake messes. Editors try to ascertain what has Ever become of that of us have lost children but As yet i have never heard of any one child having been saved except or. Smith s of Mobile and i am certain that its Mother and father saved that As i swam out with them and they had not the assistance of the sufferer i have one thing More to say to Shew that the writer probably never saw tie Mississippi River. He says that two Miles at least Froni land the vessel took a sheer off now gentlemen any one who has Ever been on the Mississippi must know that there is no place from the Mouth of the Ohio to the Belize where the Mississippi is two Miles wide and that would Only allow the boat to get one mile from Shore and at the place where we burned the River is not More than one mile wide if it is As much. The sufferer says that some passenger coming out discover etl the fire and nicked up a bucket to draw water hut found it locked. I do not know what he Calls locked but i do know that we never had buckets or a bucket locked or fastened in any Way not even to the lower railing As is generally the custom on most of the boats because we thought it More Hancy for a Cotton boat to have All our buckets free. On Board of almost any other boat he might have found buckets fastened to the lower rail but he has mistaken the boat for that part of his Story. He Speaks too of the loss of his two Sisters and one brother. Some one May have had one sister on Board but it appears utterly impossible for any one to have lost two. The Only ladies on Board that wore in any Way acquainted were mrs. Mcdowell from Kentucky and miss a gov of South Alabama who were not relations. The other ladies were mrs. Vii nil of Mobile i believe mrs. Iambic of n. Orleans mrs. Kii Isih tur of Tennessee and my Wile. Ivies. Smith had a while nurse. These Are All the ladies that were in Iho Cabin. They were All strangers to each other except mrs. Mcdowell and a miss few until they got acquainted on Board the Ben Sherrod. If the suit err has lost his Rel Anions god knows i can sympathize with him hut he certainly cannot have lost two Sisters on the Ben Sherrod with regard to my own loss suffice it to say 1 had on Board All Llrath belonged to me in the world. My of Altir my wife and my two Only children with their nurse were on l Oard. I saved none but my wife and she was so badly burned that we did not expect her to recover for some time. In a pecuniary Point of View i was interested in the boat and part of her cargo by which i am now made Worth nothing. It would be a singular time careless or negligent when i stake. I am not at All astonished at the sufferer s wish never to meet myself or Captain Dougherty. Men that slander others Are not anxious to meet them afterwards. Please messes. Editors try and ascertain the name of the writer and oblige your Friend. C. G. Castleman. Exclusive Metalic currency no Down with the monopoly Banks and give us free banking a judicious admixture of Coin and paper capital and credit mint drops and Shin plasters will furnish the True Noble Means the most desirable circulating medium. He had pondered Over his wretched situation while confined the night previous and resolved to commence business in a Small Way Issue his own notes and upon the lately created principles of free banking engraft a paper Issue which although seemingly irresponsible he was satisfied would be liquidated so soon As he received the proceeds of his poem. Behold then Timothy Jenkins no longer a specie advocate but a warm Friend of scotch banking and a Shin plaster currency. Chapter h. Timothy commences Early pays up Jones. To resolve with Timothy Jenkins was to do and in an hour after breakfast he was closeted with his Friend Simkins the grocer who vends Mustard and molasses in the second Ward. Simp Kins like Jenkins is an extraordinary Man and can follow an idea when furnished with Sleuth hound precision but like Peter spunk he was never convicted of giving breath to an Quot opinion of his own. Long and animated was the conference of the two worthies and the Sun had clambered up the Eastern skies almost to its Meridian before Timothy Jenkins might be seen wending his Way again homeward with a flashing Eye indicative of High satisfaction. I Triumph sat enthroned upon his classic brow and As he passed Down the Street he spoke certain words to himself which led Many of Quot the buy standers to suppose that he was a member of the legislature just returned from Albany with out having had an Opportunity to deliver his Maiden speech. But his expressions were of Shin plaster not of safely fund notes. Quot it will do Quot chuckled Timothy Jenkins Quot it must do. I will see How my Experiment will work the free banking system will enable me to pay my debt extend like business of my Friend rectified the moment 1 see Simpkins. Simpkins and be the father of a currency like owing to that scoundrel Nick Biddle and Gen. Jackson. This new circulating medium is a Happy Relief to the dangerous Isiu s 01 our unwieldy stale corporations and shy Nijiu i drops of the Benton currency. What a fool i have been to serve As drummer in the tells of Loco Foco ism when i have a she continued. Chapter in. Lovers go to Star of Lim Othy and conc Lunon. The course of the True Lover never did run smooth said one who had studied the philosophy of the tender passion yet Timothy Jenkins with the fair Angelina upon his Arm seemed to afford one exception to the general Rule of the poet. Timothy was occupied in pointing out the beauties of nature to his betrothed when the boat arrived at new Brighton. They strolled along the Beach or wandered a Mong the Hills until the shades of evening gathered about them and they returned to the Bay House where Timothy ordered supper. The bar keeper hearing miss Tompkins address Timothy by his full name inquired of him whet Iier he was the gentleman generally known by the appellation of Quot Shin plaster Jenkins Quot or. Jen Kins answered that he was a banker on the Shin plaster currency. Quot you of course have specie to pay for your supper Quot said sub Boniface. Quot i have not Quot replied Timothy Quot but i have plenty of my Quot they won t Quot you ought to know for or. Simpkins the grocer has refused to accept any More of them. He says you Are a Quot what do you mean sir Quot indignantly answered Timothy Quot do you know who you Are speaking to Quot Quot a know you you Are the Man who used to stir up the Loco focus and cried Down the Banks and now you have hoaxes Simon Simpkins to take your Shin plasters but he was Over Here this morning with John Jones and so your Bank must Slop Boniface turned on his Heel leaving our persecuted banker to digest the strange information he had heard. It was even so John Jones had cautioned the grocer and the consequence was that the latter refused to meet the issues of or. Jenkins. Timothy turned to Angelina for Consolation but he was appalled by the look she cast on him. Quot Dearest Angelina Quot he said tenderly pressing her hand Quot this is All a mistake which will be it is All or. Jones is not a scoundrel and would scorn to do Ami an action Quot said the lady it was evident she feared a new edition of the Hoboken excursion. "1 wish to return to the City or. Jenkins Quot for me to become had every thing at Fiorin the new in the life of William Jenkins. A talk of Tylik Suin plaster cuu Ukno v. Part third Chaptico 1. Showing How Timothy Jenkins Learned that in the Ivantch House which he afterwards turned to much account. Quot the Lane must be a Long one that has no end Quot Soliloquy sized our hero As he left the lock up House on the morning after his frustrated attempt at suicide. Quot i have played my game with honesty for the Trump and what have 1 gained the contempt of my political associates the anger of the Lovely Angeline the ridicule of Bank clerks loafers and Charleys in addition to All which 1 have been robbed of my Money my word doubted by my friends and passed a night in the watch House. So much for honesty and now Quot he left the sentence unfinished for he had reached his dwelling and the strange events of the night had sharpened his appetite and somewhat confused his ideas. To Motily Jenkins Felt that he was a persecuted Man. With every intention to act Well his part he had encountered Tiffit juries insurmountable and like Many a Wiser Man he resolved to alter his position modify Loco Foco ism and see whether some pecuniary benefits could not be gleaned from the Dis arranged state of the currency. Great men like the blossoms of the Aloe Are scarce but there arc times when from the womb of revolution anarchy or politics minds of distinguished calibre will assert their supremacy Over the common Heid and ride upon the tempestuous Billows of popular tumult to wealth Anil Honor. Our National struggle caused the devel Pement of those High Powers which the whole world confesses to have been centred in George Washington. Anarchy made Cromwell Proctor of a nation which grown and strengthened by the aristocracy of a Lozen centuries nevertheless swallowed the Semi Republican Pill he offered it with tolerable Grace and politics or what is the same thing Humbug gave an Opportunity to Timothy Jenkins of building a new currency on the ruins of the old and substituting in lieu of a specie medium a most convenient and valuable Shin plaster currency. It was Ever so and loth As we Are to record such a heinous dereliction from principle on the part of our hero yet truth constrained we announce the fact that Timothy Jenkins who the Day before was the warm advocate of a specie currency came from confinement Doc ruined to make a rag medium in the government of which he was to be president and cashier. Quot i am in debt Quot cogitate he when lie had again entered his chamber Quot this Money must he paid and i can never raise it by Ordinary Means. These Are Shin plaster times and t will profit by them i minist select a new Cue. A 1 have it a the Dethy Tracy never never was in favor of an a i ill Fortune before Titis by extending the system of free banking and making a Shin plaster Bank myself Bot ii cashier and drawer Quot Timothy laughed fixed his Beaver a la u or say and smiled upon the pretty chambermaid who opened the door to him on his return. Quot i will give her some of my currency Quot said Timothy Jenkins As he gained his apartment and threw Down upon his Secretary some packages of Blank Shin plasters. Flush with Success he on the third Day of his induction into the privileges of a banker entered the store of j. Jones who scowled upon his late Friend. Timothy quailed not beneath the glance of the indignant Jones but drawing from his pocket a Well lined Wallet he counted out Bills to the amount of one Hundred and thirty dollars which he banded Over to the astonished Jones Quot Why How is this or. Jenkins Quot said Jones. Quot May i ask How you came into Possession of this Money have you recovered your stolen pocket Book Quot Quot or. Jones Quot gravely replied or. Jenkins Quot there was a time when 1 esteemed you my Friend. That time is past and now Vve Aie Quot Humph Quot muttered Jones Quot How we apples Quot Quot or. Jones Quot continued Timothy Quot i am now a banker upon the scotch plan. 1 have made an arrangement to have All my notes taken in payment for groceries by my Friend Quot and so sneered Jones Quot the Loco Foco Jenkins has turned Shin plaster agent but How do you expect to redeem them Quot Timothy scorned to reply. Quot when you sell your property at the Mouth of the Oregon i suppose he Quot queried j. Jones. Quot or. Jones Quot said our hero Quot or. Jenkins Quot broke in the other Quot Are you aware that your new currency is a swindling operation a and you Are irresponsible and cannot redeem them Quot Quot i take the responsibility sir Quot replied Timothy. Quot you Are a Knave or. Jenkins Quot said John Jones As he handed a receipt for the Money. Quot but i have no Money but Sivin plasters and they won t take Vliem Quot mournfully answered the gentlemen. Quot very Well sir Quot was the cruel reply of the fickle fair Quot i have a shilling of your old specie currency or. Jenkins and i leave you to the pleasures of a Moon Light ramble on the Hills and the Consolation of knowing that the Shin plaster Curi ency is about As available As your specie Humbug. Good night Shin plaster Knight Quot and she accepted the Arm of the bar keeper who very politely escorted her to the Landing. Timothy Jenkins cursed himself Ivi iss Tompkins and the new currency. He saw that he was an object of suspicion and the Landlady carefully removed the Silver spoons. With a sigh he Rose and left the hotel. The kiss of the morning aroused the victim banker from his slumbers and he started from his Couch on the cold Earth with a shudder of disgust. Quot How am i to Oft no. 796. The quoins inserted.

Remarkable inst remarkable attempt to murder a girl was recently Annade at the Parish of l islet lower Canada. A girl about 19 years of age of a respectable family in the Parish had gone to gather raspberries at the end of her father s farm in company with a younger girl a Cousin about 10 years of age. As they were prepare ing to return a Lavoier named Charles Gaud Reaut a native of st. Ignace who has been Long resident in the Parish joined them with his Gua upon his shoulder returning from Pigeon shooting. Afier some conversation Between them on different matters he appeared to be suddenly seized with a diabolical Phr Enzy and seizing the two girls by their throats he threw them to the ground by dint of struggling the younger girl got free and ran to seek assistance Gaudreaux left alone with his victim took a Large Stone and struck her several blows upon the head and Oil the body he then Drew his knife from his pocket and on the body he then Drew his life from his pocket and opened it with his Teeth he endeavoured to Cut the Throat of the girl which he partially accomplished after repeated efforts a surprised however in his murderous design he fled leaving his victim for dead. The other girl resumed with assistance an4 every atle lion was paid to the sufferer and it is thought she will recover. The murderer made his escape for two Days but after a hot Pursuit he was captured and committed to prison. He is represented As a Good looking lad brutally Igno Rasit. of a Journeyman Printer yesterday a Printer in this City went to a broker to get a Twenty Dollar note changed and received for it three fives amp a one Hundred Dollor Bill. Ice Home Quot he groaned Quot the whole Story must be known and i shall be gazed at As Tho i was an escaped convict. I am almost he searched his pockets and with a shout of Joy Drew out a sixpence. With the Coin he went to the ferry and told his piteous Story. Charon generously allowed him to go on Board and Timothy Fieve on the wings of appetite to Bleeker Street. A crowd was gathered before his dwelling and no sooner did Timothy Jenkins turn the Corner than a wild shout broke from their midst and in an instant he was surrounded. Cries of villain cheat swindler fell upon his ear and every hand was extended towards him filled with his unfortunate Shin plasters. Timothy in vain attempted to speak the mob grew fiercer and trembling with fear he Betook himself to fight with his victims upon his heels. Fear Lent him wings and he distanced his pursuers who sent after him yells of baffled Lage. Seat Nir himself upon a step he burst into tears and an officer passing him judging him to be intoxicated dragged him to tie police office the victim no More of i Haj Banks but of a free banking Shin plaster currency. Walked to his boarding House before he discovered the advantage he had of the shylock but he scorned to adopt a precedent which might Lead him to crime and instantly returned the Hill and received from the broker for his honesty a look of profound astonishment.

Miss Angelina Tompkins reconciliation and declaration of love. Miss Angelina Tompkins was a singular compound of Good feeling and carelessness. It is not to be doubted that Timothy Jenkins had won her susceptible heart he had written verses to her Eye brows eulogized her hair and published some stanzas in a Magazine addressed to her i hese delicate attentions have a great effect and notwithstanding she had treated him harshly she still had a place for him in her heart More especially after the Success of his banking speculation. She therefore penned him a soft note written on Rose coloured paper and sealed with a motto Quot Pesez a Morin it she asked forgiveness for the past and Timothy no sooner perused it that he cast aside his pen and flew to the residence of his bid oved. An affecting scene ensued vows of eternal constancy were exchanged and a trip to six Ien Island arranged for the afternoon. Quot i will go and get some of my new Banle Bills Quot said Timothy Quot they Are excellent Smalt change and will prevent any sad Accident. You remember Hoboken miss Tompkins Quot Quot of or.

Happy Jenkins a but let we close this chapter. A a a a a printing office on publication Day. To see a printing office in All its glory the uninitiated ought to visit a newspaper office on the Day of publication although they May assure themselves of a frosty reception at such a there is a breathless excitement in the scene. Not a sound is heard save at a time the Slipshod step of a compositor creeping across the floor to the Foreman s desk for More copy or tha continual Click clicking of the types As they fall into their places in the composing stick. The compositors Aie stationed at their cases noiseless and Busy As Wordsworth s cattle in the Meadows there Are forty setting like one Mark the diversity of figure and expression and believe me there is As great a diversity of Talent among them.
