Settler and Pennon (Newspaper) - July 02, 1840, Smethport, PennsylvaniaSettler Pennon. The last pay. Three years from this present Fri according to me. Miller s prophecy chaos is to come again for he says the. Year 1843 will witness the Roin of the whole world and having said so in a pamphlet illustrated by several out Landish Woop cuts which May represent chaos for ought we know to the contrary to is cow reaping the Benefit of his valuable opinion by sending Large quantities of his books in every part of the country. Such kind of imposters will always find supporters in that class of people who will believe the Moon is a Green cheese if any one were to Tell them so. If the terrible foreboding of the pro Phet should come to pass mind Reader if it should what will be done with the oceans of a redeemable paper that Are continually pouring put and never go ing Back we should think thoughts of dooms Day would bring the banking concerns to a consciousness of their awful perhaps when tie prop Liet mentioned the destruction of the world he meant that it was to be swallowed up in one great Shin plaster issued on the real estate timbre Clipper. Scon a cannot laugh at ail times when that laugh comes to us at the expense of a fellow creature though if what we Are about to detail was not excelled in cunning by Vil any and fraud we should we fear be con strained to indulge in a Hearty Yaw even at our neighbor s expense. On tuesday afternoon a Well dressed and gentlemanly ind dual was seen Pas sing Down Chestnut Street twirling his cant with a Cool and careless Tii All appearance meditating a stanzas for the july number of the gentleman s Magazine suddenly the Cane As if Accident slipped from his hand and forced an Entrance into one of those Large glasses with which some of our fashionable stores Are adorned. The gentleman started with Surprise and mortification at the catastrophe and to Liu in entering the store apologised for the misfortune and desired to know the exact amount of damage the shop keeper had sustained. The answer was Twenty at which the sup posed gentleman Drew Forth a Hundred Dollar Bill and receiving in change in current Bank notes instantly bade a Good and took his leave. The sequel or acidity of the joke was that in s few hours after the is 00 Bill was phia Chron. Another chapter in the life of Claridge who is now in Moya Mensing his trial for having drawn about Twenty thou dollars from the Philadelphia Banks on false Cheeks continues to maintain his assumed character of abstract taciturn Ity. He hides his head under the Blanket of his cot and Refu ses to Converse with any one even with the officers of the prison. That is All Well enough but it will not be Lik Fri by to go any further than to convince All who see him of his capacity to As sume almost any character to suit circumstances. His present condition is certainly a gloomy one so far As future prospects Are concerned. Tiie other Day we met a reputable gentleman who furnished us with Soihet further particulars in the life of the doctor which we will briefly write out As they Correct other statements that have before been Given to the pub Lic. The gentleman alluded to informs us that the doctor s parents resided at Blackwood town new Jersey and not Wood Bury when he was born though we do not suppose that the dispute is quite so important As was the one to ascertain where Homer the immortal was born. Sut sequently. The parents removed to Lumberton new Jersey and the doctor was there with his lather who a ept in that place a country store. From Lamberton the family removed to Ayre town and thence to Rochester new Jersey where the father became unfortunate in business and lost every thing of its own. But there was considerable property belonging to the i s. Mother in her Maiden right her name was Matlick before which was so settled that it could not be expended for the liabilities of the Hus band. The Mother died while the family were at Rochester. Previously How Ever the son the present doctor who in in prison induced her to surrender her property to his guidance All that was left which it is Eaid he soon converted into available Means for his own use and expended the whole of it. The population of the town of Nashua n. In is 50go. Of that number 3694 Are women More than one half of the Republic of Texas to yet unlocked Public do Saain. This is doubtless the ground upon which it is asserted a several of jibe new York papers that the doctor once inherited a Large estate. It was rather m. Queer inheritance if it be Trie As we Are fully assured it is that he cheated Bis own Mother out of the balance of the property which she possessed. Saturday courier.
