oats, was lost on the 1st instant, near Biddiford. It is also reported that the

Quebec, one from Stockholm, one from Ontario, one from Darm, besides a number
from Liverpool, Glasgow, &c, &c.

From motives of justice, we deem it imperative on us to comment, in some
degree, on the pretensions of our Townsman, Doctor O'Maley, as set forth in his
advertisement. From the general acknowledgement of his efficiency by the poorer
class, as also from the decided impression on the minds of many highly
respectable persons who have experienced his assistance, we can soar above the
limits of refutation in asserting, that no Medical Man in the sphere of our
Community has evinced more general professional acquirement or talent. The
favourable result of many dubious Medical and Surgical Cases under his care
within the last fifteen months, being well attested, cannot fail in acquiring
him the character of a judicious practitioner; and we therefore cannot conclude
without mentioning from the most unquestionable authority, that in the
accoucheur province none of his contemporaries will be found superior; and,
under the auspices of that celebrated College from which erudition has so long
emanated, we positively assert that no man can have a greater prospect of
extensive practice in this very essential professional department.
