The subscriber informs the public that he has fitted up a building for the purpose of Bathing and Showering with the water of a Mineral Spring, the medicinal qualities of which are the same as those of Ballstown and Saratoga Springs; it being strongly impregnated with iron sulphur, and other minerals. Many persons in Middletown and its vicinity can testify that they have received great benefit from the use of this water.–It was been ascertained to be almost an infallible cure for all cutaneous complaints. The spring is about three miles north of the City of Middletown, on the Hartford Turnpike. Board can be procured near the spring.

On Friday last, the friends of the missionary cause of this town, devoted themselves to preparing a house frame for the Sandwich Island Mission. The necessary timber being generously given by a few individuals, a number of farmers and carpenters, after uniting early in prayer and a missionary hymn, engaged in the work with great cheerfulness and vigour, and by night almost completed the important undertaking. Such scenes are peculiarly pleasing to the Christian, wishing for the extension of the Redeemer’s kingdom, and very useful to those who are engaged in them. It is hoped that the religious public will be deeply interested in the reinforcement to this mission, and be more active in preparing every thing necessary for their support and comfort.
