Sometime ago we published an anecdote of general Putnam with which was connected his celebrated Brief and Blunt Lett Flo the British commander at new York general Tryon rela Tive to the hanging of a spy. We find in the sunday times of this City some interesting particulars by h. A. Buckingham esq., relative to the capture of that same Lieut. Palmer the spy aforesaid. The Story has a touch of Romance connected with it and will be read with inter . I near Peekskill pot far from the main Road stands a clump of Forest Trees among which an aged Hickory is conspicuous. It bore for a Long time and still bears i believe the name of old put s from the fact that Many a tory spy Skinner and thieving cow boy bad swung from its branches when Putnam commanded on the lines. In the of August 1777, general Tryon was at the British outposts near Kings Bridge. It Inay be remembered that he was Royal governor of new York at the commence ment of Tho and a full colonel of British regulars. After the War broke out be was placed on Active service and raised to a general s rank with Power to recruit and e Guip a tory corps or brigade from the americans who yet remained Loyal to the Crown and government of Britain. Fora Long time it had been a favorite project wit i Putnam that an attempt should be made to re Ica Plure the City of new York. From All accounts it appears that Washington did not Dis like the plan but with prudent caution wish Fetinia Ana movements at his outposts to alarm sir Henry Clinton in which he succeeded and thus kept the British troops within the City for its Protection that otherwise aided by the Fleet would have been ravaging the adjacent shores of other states. It. Became necessary to sir Henry Clinton that he should know the position and condition of Putnam s troops More accurately and also Endeavor if possible to ascertain what parties in the City gave Putnam such accurate knowledge of All his Clinton s plans. Tryon. Was Busy raising his new and for him sir Henry sent. General he said i must Knothe position of Putnam s troops and their number including his fresh battalions of militia. You ought to find some has enlisted in your corps that will go into the High lands and obtain it for us. The Reward shall be and if successful the person shall be advanced in i think i have such a Man sir sergeant in Delencey s regiment. He enlisted Only a week ago and is intelligent and ambitious. He has friends on the other Side that do not know he has joined us the very Man. Go and Send him.1" general tryout was absent about two hours for he bad. To Send to Harlem where the sergeant was stationed undergoing a Drill with others of the new levies under their officers. I have seen the Man and had a Long conversation with said Tryon when he entered. He is willing to undertake it on one condition and that Only a condition of what is it that he shall receive a lieutenants com Mission at once. He. Will then depart the instant you require and is confident of you know him to be worthy of Reliance v. From 1 can learn and from my own judgment i should not doubt it in the then let his commission be made out and Send him with it to me. If i have the same opinion of him i Wuh sign the Young sergeant soon made his appear Ance. He was not More than three and Twenty years of age of Good personal appearance and a cunning twinkle about his Small Black Eye denoted no want of Confidence in his own Good opinion. Sir Henry was 60 Well pleased with him that his instructions were soon Complete and receiving his commission the new Lieuten ant bade the British commander Farewell to re turn in a few Days with information. On reaching his quarters he changed his Mili tary apparel for a Plain countryman s suit rip Ped the lining of his cocked hat under which he placed his commission which he carefully renewed saying to i think when miss Rosa Milf bad sees my commission As an officer in his majesty s service will no longer refuse the hand of Nathan v the next morning be left the further British outposts at Kingsbridge on horseback where general Tryon had accompanied him to pursue., his expedition. It we k Beautiful morning and a looked Forward with All the anticipations of pleasure and Hope gleamed warmly in his breast he passed the Neutral ground with out and advanced into what was considered the american District without being troubled by any of the occasional travellers on the Road although almost every one wan armed and carried his Musket. Now and then he met an american Yeoman or Farmer with whom he was acquainted that knew not yet of his defection for he was born in that Section of the coun try and resident then comic red at neighbors. Late in the after noon he came within sight of the regular ame Talican outposts when he turned off the main Road by a narrower one that led to a Mill and dwell ing on the Banks of a Small but rapid let a for a moment look into the dwelling and notice its inmates. One was a girl of a jut eighteen a Fine rustic Beauty engaged in some trifling House work but mainly listening to the conversation of a Lively looking Brown Cora flexion de Young Man in half military it was evident that what he said pleased her for she looked at him from time to time As she smiled archly with fondness. These two were Rosa Milford the Miller s daughter and Wil Liam Townley a neighbouring Farmer s son and an Ensign in the army lying near., who is that William doming towards the Mill on horseback As i said the Young Man it is your old spark that sly Rascal Nathan Palmer the Dominie s Nephew who despises him. And has cast him off. The rogue i heard in private this morning had enlisted m the refugee corps. If i knew certain he should swing for depend upon it Rosa he is Here for no Good purpose or do not be seen William. Leave me to manage the Young Man retired by a Back door but not out of hearing As the tory lieutenant and spy entered by the front he advanced with a bold step. Miss Rosa i have but Little time to spare and want your answer at once. Read he took the commission from the lining of his hat and placed it before her. Some difference Between holding a commis Sion in King George s service. Annj said Rosa sternly i always disliked i hate and she handed him his commission. Do you refuse to to my wife your wife leave this House or i shall be tempted to Loose the dog at the Mill upon Good Bye miss he said grinding his Teeth in anger. Look to your father s your i Wilf and he mounted his horse and Rode swiftly away. Rosa hastened to the Back door to look for her Lover. He just entering the Woods leading to the Camp and the waive of his hand indicated to Rosa that he knew Palmer Serend. He hastened to Camp had an interview with Putnam and the latter issued his private orders. Palmer came into the lines that the Freedom of on old companion and having As he supposed accomplished his errand was about taking his departure when be was arrested and the fatal commission was full proof guilt As a spy. After a Brief trial he was be Hung an put s Gallows the next afternoon. Before the hour of execution came Tryon who had heard of the arrest of Palmer sent in a Flag declaring it murder to hang More civilian who happened to he a loyalist and threatening retaliation. He was not aware that Palmer s commission had been found upon his Putnam wrote Back his Brief and memorable note i head quarters aug. 7, 1777. 1 lieutenant in your King s service was taken in my Camp As a spy.

Medicinal from tie Java Mastt wac the cholera the itt nent of m Cormick of the a rioted states army and one of the gentlemen constituting general suite while on. His Way to Washington a the author of the lowing remarks on the pathology and treatment of cholera. They were originally written and transmit fed in a private letter to a Friend at the North who knowing or. M cow pick s experience in the treatment of cholera embraced in the visitation of that Washington in 1832. And recently at new Orleans very naturally desired to learn his views with regard to the Best Mode of treating it. Another of the gentlemen accompanying Gen. Taylor who was aware that or. M Cormick had committed his views on the subject to writing and desirous to see them in print applied to the doctor for a copy Jand having handed it to us for publication. It will be found below cholera has four distinctly marked stages 1st. Rejections. 3d. Watery discharges by the stomach Bow Els and Skish. 3d. Corp Jike coldness and blueness of the skin or collapse. 4th? re action choleric Ferer a state strongly resembling typhus. The first consists in a simple bowels the rejections a Najj to at the next plainly marked stage of the disease. The second evacuations now con Sist of Little else than watery fluid. With these discharges the thirst is always intense and the voice begins to fail. Stomach becomes involved pouring Forth the same watery fluid in greater or less abundance and ushered this evacuation from the stomach bowels and skin and apparently intimately connected with it is seen the most painfully distressing Pheno Mena of this terrific malady the cramps and spasms causing the patient at times to writhe in agony giving Forth every expression of pain that human torture could provoke. The third period follows and consists of col lapse. Tins seems naturally explained by the waste of the watery portion of the blood and the great exhaustion of the nervous system so inti mately connected with it and with the violent cramps and spasms. The voice Lias become More feeble the. Watery evacuations cease the agony is Over for the spasms have also ceased and the patient lies indifferent apathetic fear less and craves Only drink. The tines intense becomes insatiable and seems to exist in a direct ratio to the Quantity of watery fluid poured Forth by the discharges and to de Pend thereon. It seems w arise from an instinctive desire and urgent demand to Supply the waste and drainage of the system. The whole body shrinks the features become contracted pointed choleric the eyes deeply sunken in their sockets balls rolled upwards great suffering or total indifference. The skin is is cold a a Corpse and moist of a a Lozieh Hue varying from both in. Intensity of color and extent of surface it occupies the hands and feet particularly Are shrivelled and corrugated and greatly shrunken having lost at least one third of their bulk and look As if Long macerated in water like a Wash woman s the pulse is scarcely Discerni ble or extinct and the action of the heart fee ble the air enters the lungs but respiration is laborious with a sense of suffocation from the changed condition of the blood that prevents the full vilifying influence of the air on spin Sidiny being such that it does not flow in its usual channels which exposes so great a surface to the action of the air throughout its minute and abundant capillaries t in voice enfeebled and greatly diminished has become husky and nearly extinct and the Dema d it makes is still for cold water. I they complain of being parched Barning up and yet Trie whole surface is icy cold and possesses an exalted sensibility Sinap isms blisters rare loudly complained of As burning like the hand of a healthy person brought in Contact with a collapsed cholera patient i loudly complained of As the Tongue is cold Broad Flat and dry or mucous and Abdomen. Retracted. In Short the whole body has become blood changed in us deprived of its portion no longer traverses its accustomed rounds but collects in the heart and veins especially the larger trunks in undue Quantity. This change of place arising from n change in the spin Dity of the blood gives Rise in turn to other therel is no arterial blood there is no secretion except that of bile As before stated the blood has forsaken the arte Ries and retreated into the veins throughout All this frightful havoc of the physical Frame the mind moves clearly self possessed and Begir Sto feel Tho destructive influence or is gone with few exceptions Only when the brain has to be supplied with rated when the individual u in Articulo mortis. The fourth stage Seldom occurs. But when an individual collapsed and lives through it the fourth stage is it one of re action re tumbling typhus. T hut ment. It is. Always of great and sometimes even of vital that the patient should he in bed. In the first stage give Calomel and opium according to the nature and frequency of the i have usually commenced in Ordinary cases by giving one of the following pills after each Sooae evacuation Viz i Calomel thirty grains powdered opium grains mix intimately and Divide into six pills j in this Way in the course of a few hours you will probably give Twenty grains of Calomel and four grains of opium in Ordinary cases will generally prove sufficient and even in most severe you will have administered a much Calomel As will necessary. When this has proved the evacuations will have become far less frequent and changed in character especially in consistence. In this Early stage the danger is greater the More frequent and thinner or More liquid and watery the stools May become. You can con Itsue therefore to give one of the Calomel and opium pills after each evacuation1, if of this Char Acter until the whole six Are taken and if the passages till continue it becomes necessary to continue the opium As powdered grains i powdered camphor twelve grains Mustard and warm Mustard foot Baths prove Aleo highly beneficial. When the attack is sudden and severe give one Dosa Twenty grains of Calomel and two of opium and repeat the opium and camphor pills a directed and use the Sinap isms Poullis in the second period when the watery evacuations set in they either resemble in fluidity and Colora Mustard nut Triin or me of a i Ivo water character with a White powder settling at the Bottom of the vessel or watery with White Al Pauli or flakes interspersed in it making it somewhat turbid looking like White the voice Falls also and cramps or spasm s come on in the legs arms and sometimes the bowels the Case is How extremely urge he and unless the watery discharges can be arrested the patient must pass into the collapse from which there is Little if any Hope. I have Heen in the Haj it of giving sugar of Leal and opium in the following Way in pills Jigar of drachma powdered grains mix intimately and make into twelve pills give one after every watery evacuation and if these Are copious oftener or a larger doses say two pills at a time. May be Given by injections thus take sugar of Lead one drachma dissolve in water fix ounces three wine glasses full and add a teaspoonful of laudanum and give half As an injection and repeat As May be necessary. To allay the distressing nausea vomiting and insatiable thirst in this Anil the following stage of collapse use drops mucilage of gum arabic or s flax seed tablespoonful i Well together and give a teaspoonful four or five1 times a Day or oftener As May be necessary. As in this stage they Are about to pass into collapse if it u not use of stimulants soon become necessary. I have used Champaigne , toddy and Carbonate ammonia As follows Carbonate of drachmas powdered gum drachmas wine glasses full mix and give a tablespoonful every fifteen minutes or half hour As May be necessary using at the same time the Brandy or wine direct Sinap isms or blisters Over the pit of the Eton cd and to the extremities.
