voices were deep, sad, and almost inaudible.-
Without saying another word, the boy put on his
hat, and the girl her sun-bonnet, and taking each
other by the hand, they went forth and roamed
silently to their mother's grave. There they
stood for a lons time, still, still-and their tears

[From the Colwl. gMgasipe.]
[The following story is fo ~ied -Wt'aSti'which
occurred duing the latter part of-the eighteenth
century. T'bc- leading incidents are still in the
memory oft '.e iuhabitaiut of Chester county,
Pennsylvanut' '
ELIZABE1r-I WiMos 'was of humble, though
respectable i 'rentage. From infancy she was
remarked il., wauty, and a delicate nervous or-
ganizati6n.. _JIr brother WILuIM, two years
c'ler, wa a hiadsome child, with a more
urdiivG~~u. me. He had a gentle. lov-
Isn9li.on sa I c^, .d htttle sister.' In their
earl 'yesrs, Lizzy was his constant shadow. If
he went to the barn to hunt eggs, the little one
wap sure to tan prattling along with him, hand
in hand. If he pelted walnuts from the tree, she
was sure to be:here with her little basket, to pick
them up. They sat on the same blue bench to
exz their bread and milk; and with the first jack-
kaife he ever owned, the affectionate boy carved
un it the letters of W. and E., for William and
Elizabeth. The'sister lavishly returned his love.
If a pie was baked for her, she would never break
it till Willie came to share; and she would never
go to shep unless her arms were about his neck.
Theii mother, a woman of tender heart and
yielding temper, took great delight in her hand-
somae children. Often, when, she went out to
gatherdihips or brush, she stopped to look in upon
them, at they sat on the blue bench, feeding each
other frm their little porringers of bread and
tlii.' 'Te cross-lights from a side-window threw
on them reflection of lilac bushes, so that they
seemed stated in a flowering grove. It was the
only pichre the poor woman had; but none oi
the old tasters could have equaled its beauty.
The earliest and strongest development of
Lizzy's character was love. She was always ca-
ressing tie kitten; or twining her arms about
Willie's ieck, or leaning on her mother's lap,
begging Dr a kits. A dozen times a dayshe
would lod< earnestly into her mother's eyes, 'and
inquire, nost beseechingly, "Does you love your
little Liz:y ?" And if the fond answer did not
come as promptly as usual, her beautiful eyes,
always pidntive in their expression, would begin
.to swim vith tears. This "strong necessity of
loving," vhich so pervades the nature of woman,
thetfair clild inherited from her gentle mother;
and from her, too, inherited a deficiency of firm-
ness, of vhich such natures have double need.
To be every thing, and do every thing, for those
she love, was the paramount law of her ex-
Such being was of course born for sorrow.-
Even .in infancy, the discerning eye might already,
see its prophetic shadow resting on' her express-
ive countenance. The first great affliction of her'
life, was the death of her mother, when she ,was
ten years aid. Her delicate nerves were shattered
by the bbw, and were never after fully restored
lo health .The dead body of her beloved mother,
with large coins .on the eyelids, was so awfully
impressed on her imagination, that the image fol-
lowed her every where,zeven into her dreams,-
A4 he sept, tears often dropped from her tremu-
start and scrflf- fiiwas no gentle voice
near to soothe Icr perturbed spirit; none tO throw
ah w n "'V shining robe dver the hideous. $ectre
that lay so cold and stiff in the halls of memory.
Her falher fed and clothed his children, and
casu-d them to be taught to read and write. It
did not occur to him that any thing more was in-
cluded in parental-duty. Ot clothing for the
mind, or food for the heart, he knew nothing; for
his own had never been clothed and fed. He
cau home weary from daily toil, ate his supper,
dozed in his chair awhile*, and then sent the chil-
dren to bed, A few times, alter the death of his
wife,. he kissed his.daughter; but she never ven-
tuied to look into his eyes and ask--" Does you
love your little Lizy?" Willie was her only
consolation; and all he could do was to weep pas-
sionately with her, at every thing which remind-
ed them of their mother.
Nature, as usual, reflected back the image of
the soul that gazed upon her. To Lizzy's excited
mind, every thing appeared mysterious and awful,
and all sounds seemed to wail and, sih. T&i4
rustling.of the trees in the evening wind went
through her, like the voice of a spirit, and when
the nights were bright, she would hide her head
in her brother's bosom and whisper-"
Willie, dear, I Wish the moon would not keep
looking at me. She seems to say something to
me; and it makes me afraid."
All susceptible souls have felt thus, particularly
when under the influence of grief:-' -
"The snow of deepest silence
<-YLer even thing doih fall,
"; beautiful and quiet;
"'" Ard 'etso like apl!-- a*
: As it all life were ended,
And rest had come to all."
Such a state of feeling, long indulged, could not
;beotherwise than injurious to a bodily Irame ori-
fg4tally delicate. The sensitive child soon became
subject to fits, the severity of which, at times,
threatened her life. On coming out of those
spasms, with piteous toes, and bewildered looks,
she would ask, Where is my mother ?"
At the end of a year an important change came
over the lonely household. A' strong, active step-
moter was introduced. Her loud voice and en-
ergetic tread, so different from her own quiet and
timid mother's frightened poor Lizzy. Her iearn
more than ever turned back upon itself, and lis-
,tenedto theechoes ot its own yearnings. Willie,
being old enough to work on the farm, was now
absent most of the day; and the fair girl, so richly
endowed bh nature, with' all the deep feelings and
hbeautlrul capacities, co lavish of her affections, so
.cusiomed to free outpourings of love, became
reserved, and apparently cold and stupid. When
the step mother gave birth to an infant, the foun-
tains oi'feeling were again unsealed. It was her
.delight to watch the babe, and minister to its
wants. But this developement of.the arfections
-was likewise destinedto be nippei in the bud.-
The step-mother, though by no means hard-heart-
ed, was economical and worldly-wise.. She
deemed it most profitable to employ a healthy,
stout niece of her own, somewhat older than Eliz-
abeth, and have her step-daughter bound out in
some family where she could d6 light labor. It
was also determined that William should go to
service; and his place uf doatination was fifty
miles Irmtt that'. ofhis sister.

great consequences that may ensue tom the vote
of this single county, in the ensuing State elec-

The great occasion of the induction itpt office
of the new President, was celebrated in our city
by the Democrats, in the most august, sublime,
and imposing manner. All the tact, talent, and
inventive genius oP the patty, were brought into
requisition. To give to the affair the acme of
grandeur, a hickory pole, about the height of a
barber's sign, was erected in one of ow public
stluares, around which the great unterritied"
assembled, making the welkin ring again with
the display of the powers of their ethaustless
fongs. The pole being securely. up, sn4 the
ntldtitude having gazed on it till their admira-
tion had omoed out hi expressions of satisfaction
at the gigantic spectacle it presented, the great
mass of the party retired, to dream on the splen-
dot of their achievements, and the glory that
awaited them on the morrow. Bat, at "the very
witching time of night," when all honest people
should have been abed-and no doubt were-
there might have been seen, by the faint glim-
mering of the bonfire that struggled through the
fog, two or three rough-hewn sentinels, .u rmnei
to the teeth," walking the round assigned them,
to protect the towering symbol of democratic
principles against the midnight depredations of
the rascally Whigs." As a pretext for this
precaution, it was avered that the cannon, which
they had procured to fire their salutes, was spiked;
anrt the foul deed, of course, was charged to the
account of the Whigs. Our lives apon it, if the
gun was spiked at all, it was done by some sneak-
ing' locofoco, who had just principle enough to
find a zest in the slanders against a party, whose
righ-toned and honorable feelings he had net the
heart to appreciate, and whose pmre and lefty im
he had not the intelligence to comprehend. The
Wkigs stoop to no such petty tricks.

The morning of the 4th was ushered inv by the
firing of one salute; a flag, about the size of an
itd fashion bandanna handkerchief, was hoisted
to the top of the persimmon bush that sumnnount-
ed the pole, and there waved in its pride of
lace" all-day. A rope was fied from oe side
of the street to the other, upon which was strung
two rags, bearing the magic: names 'of "J. .
Pot," and .M. Dallas."
At 12 o'eloci, the firing f-sae- Bm was ib-
rmed, and the poor Whigs, whose nerves wwal
peculiarly sensitive on this occasion, were com-
pelled to withstand the shocks of an hundred
wecessive reports! The simple noise of the can-
non was nothing, but the conviction that each
reverberating peal" told the death-kneU qf the
Waig party.'!I" was awful in the extreme!
Ab! there was the respect that made the deep
ones of the ordnance grate on our ears mkMW the
asping of the sinews. But no one complained
loud; if any Whig was dissatisfied with what

It gives no countenance to Dorrism, Anti-rent ism,
Mormonism or Abolitionism. Our flag covers
none of the .eide, disorderly and vagrant bodies,
that are scattered over the lund: we court them
not--re barter no principles for their votes-we
hold "'no promise to their ear, to break it to their
sense." The old Democratic Party, who acted
under the Fathers of the Revolution, were jealous
of Executive power, and in favor of lodging all
power ihi the hands of the imetediate Represen-
tativeaof the people; they knew that the patron-
age which necessity obliged them to confer on the
Executive, was in itself dangerous; and liheir
constartt endeavors ere to keep the Executive
power within close limits. And what hall been
the action of the Whigs of late years, but a con-
stant war against Executive usurpation ?- while
the psuedo Democracy of the present day have
have been the constant panders to Executive appe- i
tite. Call you this Democracy! this man-worship
-this shouting lo Trminrphe! to the reckless
leaders who ride over and cast down the constitu-
tional barriers, which our patriotic ancestors have
placed around the most sacred rights ofthe peo-
ple? A shame ona such Democracy: It draws

wasgoing on around him, the chagrin found no
speech. Had Amos been a resident of our city,
the firing might have been suspended, as in eigh-
teen hundred and forty, he, in particular, and the
loco focos, in general, had a wonderful aversion
to the burning of gunpowder. But, fortunately
for the democrats, there are no Amoses among
the Whigs; and their demonstrations of joy found
"no check or disturbance, save in the severe injury
of one of their own number, by the bad manage-
ment of the gun, who, we regret to say, has since
At sun-set one more salute was fired-the stars
and stripes were run down from the persimmon
bush, and the remainder of the evening was spent
by the locos, in seeial intercourse.
Thus passed off the greatest celebration that
it has been our fortune to witness; and we regret
our inability to give the minute occurrences of the
day; but as we had no k"chiel amang 'em takin'
noes," and were ourselves otherwise engaged,
this imperfect outline must suffice. For partic-
ulars, see our mammoth contemporary of Talla-
hassee. They are au faith in all matters that
transpire here, and to them we shall look antious-
ly for a detailed account of tbe whole affair.

D4IMocr.ATIC SENrrMgN.rs.-Nnt very long ago,
while the democratic party were jubilating over a
great national event, one of the "unterrified,"
whose soul was swimming in the liquidating pool
of patriotism, and who had not the fear of villain-
ous saltpetre "before his eyes, was severely injur.'d
by the premature explosion of a cannon. Shortly
afterwards, on repairing to at shop of' intoxicating
fluids," one of the principal officiaries of the day
being called on for a sentiSnent, gave-" Here's to
the recovery of the poor fellow who was hurt to-
day. He was injured in a glorious cause, and it
would have been glorious had he been killed.'-
After this, Mynheer Hendrick Speighegt was called
on; and turning to his Tych brethren, he informed
them that Not so very long time ago, tese United
States vas jist so little as could be, so very small
like von little pig; but jist so fast as von little pig
coot grow tese United States did grow, till it vas
now jist so like as a dem pig hog." Thunders
of applause interrupted farther speech, and we left,
filled with admiration for the patriotism of our
democratic brethren, Which was not at allodimin-
ished by the numbers We saw scattered by the way
side, recumbent in srmrT-ualized glory. And we
could not but exclaim, in the language of the poet,
How sleep the uNTtkarFIeXD who have sunk to rest,
By all their PARTY'S wishes blest!"

At an adjourned meeting of the Whig Party of
Franklin county, held at the Whig Club Room,
on Thursday evening 6th inst., H. G, Guyon,
chairman and W. Valleau, Secretary-
H. W; Brooks, Esq,, from the Committee ap-
pointed at the last meeting to draw up a Report,
presented the following Preamble and Resolutions,
Which, on motion, 'were read by the Secretary,
and unanimously adopted.--
The Committee appointed by a meeting of the
Whigs on the 22d inst., beg leave to stbmit the
following Preamble and Resolutions for the con-
sideration and approval of this meeting:-
In defining Whig principles, and explaining
the measures of Whig policy, your committee
have no arduous duty to perform. Our principles
are steadfast and uniform. Since the formation
and they claim, as their advocates, the most illus-
I ariou aaerewmotir FUrttAl flstry--'the Admin-
istrations of MADISON and MorNROE : the first
illustrated by a glorious and brilliant War with
the most powerful nation of the world; the latter,
distinguished by a succession of rich harvests of
national prosperity and happiness. The Admin-
istration of Monroe has been aptly called the
Augustan Age of our Republic; and the doctrines
we this day advocate, atid the principles the Whig
Party this day inculcate, were then the prolific
elements, the effectual influences, in 'producing
that scroll of National Glory-those reCords of
National Prosperity.
But oTe are told, btheae wef Democrmfi' Ad-
ministrations; and the Democratic Party of the
present day claim, all the glory that belongs to
them. We can afford to give them the tnamei
since they are willing to leave with us the prin-
ciples. Madison and Maonroe were in favor of s
ULniled States Bank, and a Protective Tariff,
as wel as' a judicious system of Internal Improes-
ments; and we, the Whigs of this day, advocate
the same principles from Maine to Louiuianna.
We derive oer Democracy from the Sages of the
Republic-from men whose minds were purified
by the fire of the Revolution-whose patriotism
~was tested by years of deprivation, and tort, and
tribulation-and while we hold to theft' princi-
ples steadfastly, let us take courage from their
example, and be firm in our course-in defeat,
faithfull among the failhless"-in Cictory,
rejoicing in moderation, In the late contest of
parties, we have cause to rejoice even in defeat.
We can lont over the wide" extent of our country,
and wherever the Whig Banner nas been unfurled,
it bore uniform insignia. The Whig from Louis-
iana or Georgia, found no strange battle-cry among
the Whigs of Pennsylvania or New Yorkle. Our
orators proclaimed the same doctrines on the
banks of the Savannah, that were taught on the
bordervo the Hudson. Every where, the Whig
Part): have ben the defenders of law and' order.

On motion of Judge DaVi, a Committee of six
was appointed by the Chair, to report to tbemeet-
ing officers of the Whig Club, in cofeormity to
the requisitions of the 3d Resolution, consisting
of Judge Davis; J. C. Matlay, H. W. Brooks, A. -
Downer, D. J. Day,'N. J. Deblois, and William

a few moments, returned' and reported through,

not its spirit from the Democrats of 1812: it is
of some other stock: it assimilates more to the
Jacobins of France: it savours more of the Fau-
bourg St. Antoine.
The Whigs of the present day are in favor of lim-
iting the Presidency to one term of four years, and
of curtailing and modifying the Veto power. And
are not these Democratic doctrines? .Is it not
withdrawing from the Executive the power of
frustrating the will of the People ? And yet the
Democracy of the present day are opposed to this,
and prefer the dictum of the President to the ex-,
pressed will of the People!
But, as a good illustration of the honesty and
purity of Whig principles may be drawn from the
policy and movements of the opposing party,
your Committee would briefly advert to the com-
position of the Democratic party of the present
day. In Georgia and South Carolina, we find the
Democratic Party assaulting a Protective Tariff;
portraying it as a system of robbery and iniquity.
Disunion is recommended as a happy alternative
to such a system of oppression. The distribution
of the proceeds of the iblic Lands, is another
Hydra in the catalogue of abominations, which
Southern Demagogues hold out to frighten inno-
cent citigns. But in the North, our Democracy
has anofer cree'td, tlTe Ery oposite %V this.-
They are, in Pennsylvania, the very best friends
of the Tariff; and a South Carolina Nullifieri who
at home swears, harder than the army in Flan-
ders," against the Bill of Abominations," will
walk with face towards Heaven, in a Democratic
procession in Pennsylvania, when "ProteCtive
Tariff" flags flutter all around him, and smile at
the wonderful demonstrations of his party. And
we are to believe there is principle in such a par-
ty! Is there honesty, or truth, or purity, in a
party which so baffles all consistency and so viO-
lates all sincerity? But one of the great leaders
of the Democ i ras furnished us the cause for
this happy h ar ot opposing elements. He
says, they ar|j together by the cohesivee
power of pu l iS under and as the author of
this discovery has had ample experience in the
modern school of Democracy, and your Commit.
tee have none, we are bound to admit his explan-
ation of the anomaly.
The Whig Party have been in the minority in
our Government, as regards all efficient purposes,
for near twenty years; and what has been the his-
tory of those years ? Let us refer to it for a mo-
ment. When General Jackson came into power
in 1828, the country Was prosperous in all her
relations, Capital was moderately ind prudently
protected; labor was fairly and steadily rewarded;
the Utfnited States Bank was in wholesome and
beneficent operation; its concerns were managed
apatt frotn party influences, and no one dreamed
of ithputing to its operations any political bias
General Jackson had a political friend in Ports-
mouth, New Hampshire, who was not provided
forf He had exhausted the legitimate roll of re-
wards, and still the greedy Cormorants who had
done political service for their Chief, were not all
satisfied. This New Hampshire friend claimed
his pay; the ordinary political coffers, as we have
'said, were exhausted; and it was then, then, for
the first time, the Presidepni-rf the Untied States
dared to ask the officers of the.?nited States Bank
to pay hi@ partisans. The officers of the Bank
AeiuseU iu yield -tie tiu.mmi, 01o the 1.xeculive,
ahd then it was that the hero swore, by the
ternA, tie rould ddew, the Monster!" A
monster, indeed, that would not open its valuts as
spoils for the followers of a partisan leader!!
The monster was destroyed ; and as an evidence
of the ability of its management, the Bank wound
up her business at the expiration of her Charter,
and paid the Government 17 petr cent. premium
on her stock.
The United States Bank,-which Was afterwards
chartered by a Democratic Legislature of Penn-
sylvania, had its rise, career and termination,
corresponding pretty much with others of the
same class of local Banks, which were evoked
into existence by the almighty fiat of Gen. Jack-
son; who, in his financial wisdom, urged the
Legislatures of the 'various States to fill up the
vactuei, which he had made by the destruction
of the National Bank, by the( incorporation of
local Banks; and for fear erfough capital cold
hot so hastily be acquired, he, by the Pet Bank"
system, gave them the use of the public treasury.
This "Pet Bank" system was the first great
financial operation of modern Democracy-it was
the child of their first love-the pledge of their
first union; and how have they treated it? In its
waywardness and pranks they drearrtd' it, and
left it to the cold charities of the world. In
fact, latterly, they have disowned It in defiance of
recorded paternity, and try to cast uipon the
Whigs the care of their woe-begone bantlng.
Gen. Jackson called them into existence-they
arose like magic at his powerful word, and we
hare only to look at the Democratic States ef
Mississippi, Alabama, rilinois and Michigan, and
behold, thick as the leaves of Valambrosa, the
forgotten, the forsaken, the tattered, monuments
(in the shape of broken Banks) of General Jack-
son's first effort in financiering.
The next financial effort of modern Democracy,
was the Sab'Treasury. Gen. Jackson, finding

that his "Pet Banks" made awful c havoc" of
the funds, afthougb committed to the keeping of
his own chosen friends; and finding it inconven-
?ent to keep the public money in his breeches
pocket," left to his successor the brilliant idea of
a Sub-Treasury. The public officerS, who were
selected by the President, and were of course of
the present Democracy, were to be the keepers
of the public money; but the second wooe was
worse than the first-defalcations, flights, Swart-
woutings, in every quarter, filled the public jour. I
nals; and the people, in the majesty of their'
strength, arose in 180, and hurled them front I
their places. But, alas for the country fits wishes
were frustrated.
Your Committee will make no allusion to the
person who has just retired' from the Presidential
Chair. The charge of treason is fastened on him,
and, like the shirt of Nessus, will cleave to
him-his punishment will be enough in the,
damning page which history will assign'him.
As regards the financial policy of the present
Democratic administration, we of course are yet
in the dkrk ; but it reminds us strongly of by-
gone Democratic rule, to discover that the very
first fiduciary officer appointed by the Democracy.
(he Clerk of the Housw of. Representativess) b

and a man hitherto of no small stature in the
Democratic ranks, is already a defaulter to a large
amount. And well may Gen. McKay, a Demo-
cratic member of Congress, exclaim-" Why is
it we have so many defaulters among the Demo-
crats? Why is it?" The answer of a Whig
Committee might not suit the General, and there-
fore we leave it with his own party to reply to
the interrogatory-onlj i'emarking, that if the
Sub-Treasury system is continued, we feel confi-
dent' the General will be compelled to ask the
question more than once.
The Pet Bank" system, and ihe Sub-Trea-
sury, are the only means of policy to which the
modern Democracy have committed themselves--
that party fird it more expedient to oppose than
to propose. The great leading measure with the
modern or progressive Democracy is, to get into
office. They have proved in the late election,
that consilency is of no value when put in com-
petition with expediency. The character of the
means is worth no consideration, in comparison
with their arailibUity. And we have even seen
the Democracy. of Middle Florida pledging them-
selves, during the last summer, to have a law
passed to give precedijnce. to subsequent over -.
prior mortgages. TI4F words .to give-.re-
cedence to the mortgaie 48a6vte,'remfoe4 t-ot.a
day, over that of a non-voter, 4hich was recorded.
against the same property fiveyears age. But this
i-i progressive Democracy--.progressive where?
Alas, the infractions of-law-the opposition to
the course of Justice-the anti-rent disturbances
in New York--the rabble of Chepatchet in
Rhode Island-are all indications of the footsteps
of progressive Democracy. Considerations of
good faith in the fulfilment of treaties, form oino
impediment to its progressive strides.
But, to the members of the Whig party, the
eyes of the order-loving, and law-abiding people
are turned'- In them rests the hopes of the
Patriot, for the conservation of our peace, liberty
and prosperity, and surely they will not be de-
cieved. Although beaten in the last contest, by
means which add no glory to the victors, we still
find all over the country, the veterans of our
party rallying, with unbroken energy, and unfal-
tering zeal, to the contest. To be sure some of
the small squads, who held an equivocal position
about our flanks, have disappeared; but the 've-
terans of the Old Guard are still in cloe col-
umn, and eager again to do service in the cause
of Old Democracy; And now, for the first time,
the new recruits of Florida are called into line.
And from the evidence every where surrounding
us, we feel proud in recognizing bow cheerfully
they come'up to the great contest of Constitu-
tionfal Liberty.
In conclusion, we would say to our Whig
friends of Franklin county-look to the example
of your Whig friends in the States around you-
their constancy in defeat-their steadiness and.
firmness, amidst treache'y and disaster. Yen
bear an honored name--ballowed to patriotism,
by the men who bore it in the Revolution. Re-
member their deeds! Emulate their example !
Resolved, That we consider the following as'
the fundamental doctrines of the Whig Party,
every vi here recognized and subscribed to, and
we give them our hearty approval and support:
I. A sound National Currencr,established and
rtnllated hv the autrhnrim "tnf thoe (P.vPrmPnt.
An adequate [eienue for an economical ad-
mifnieration of the National Government, with
proper discrimination for protection to our own
domestic industryy,
3.' Jt restraints on the Executive power, em-
bracing a ltodification ol' the veto power, 'and.
limiting the incumbent of the Presidential office
to a single term. I
4. A laith'tul disposition of the Public Domain,
with an equitable distribution of the proceeds of
the sales thereof among all the States, according
to the letter'and spirit of the Deed of Cession.
5. An honest and economical administration of
the General Government, in all its departments
leaving public officers perfect freedom of thought
and the right of sutlrage, but with just and salu-
tary restraints against improper interference in
6. A judicious system of Internal Improve-
ments, by the construction of harbors, roads atid
canalpi as the wants of the people demand them.
7. A general system for the promotion of know-
ledge, a'rd the enlargement of the means of edu-
Rcsoloed, That for the more efficient support
and maintenance of these principles, a Club be
formed to be called The Whig Club of Apa-
Resolvetd, That the Club have as officers a
President, whose duty it shall be to call meetings
as often as he may think proper, and preside over
the deliberationa of the Club, when present, and
twelve Vice Presidents, one of whom shall pre.
side in the afaehce of the President; two Re-
cording and two Cerre pondt dtt rtanes.
Resolved, That our admiration and respect for
the distinguished Patriot and Statesman, HENRY
CLAY, the favorite candidate of the Whigs for
the Presidency,' are in no wise diminished by our
late defeat, conscieua, as we are, that there is '
higher honor and nobler pride in defeat, under
such a leader and Whig principles, than in vic-
tory under their opposite; that the exalted place
where the name of HENaR CLAY is inscribed'
in the annals of his country, and in the affections''
of his countrymen,.wMas attained by devoted ser-
vice to that country, and steady adherence to
those principles and measures which he deemed
essential to the welfare of,tJe people--egardlesu
of his own preferment.-. i his honorable and

S years proprieto,;.of theCLINTON
1116t HOTEL, respeeiflly announces to
I his friends and the public, that he
has this day aseociated with him as
joint partner, Mr. JOHN C. BLASDEL. The
,business will hereafter be corited under the
firm of HODGES & BLADJPEL and it
will be their study to make the Cx.r.rt HOTEL

New York, Jan. 1, 1845.
The CLINTON H-OTL having foi long
time received a large share of the Southern
Travel, and the Junior Partner having for the
past twelve years been a resident of the South,
the undersigned with pleasure inform the citizens
of APALACHICOLA, and the public generally,
that this Hotel is now undergoing a thorough re-
pair, painting, &c. &c., together with many ad-
ditions of furniture. 'Having always received a
large share of Southern patronage, the proprie-
tors are determined their House shall maintain
the high standing it has ib long possessed-that
of being inferior to none in tli city; and its lo-
cation renders it decidedly one of the most de-
sirable stopping places in the great metropolis.
Situated on Beekman street, directly opposite the
Park, City Hall, and the Fountain, presents one
of the finest views in New York-also, being
within two minutes walk of Broadtay, it pos-
ises 4all the advantages or houes on that street,
without their noise day and night.
Gentlrnien with their families will find this
Hotel particularly desirable on account of its
quiet and comfort, and tle Proprietors extend
the assurance to all who may favbr them with a
call, that no pains will bbe spiird by them to
render the visits of their guests pleasant knd

Brandreth's Pills.
TrHOSE of' our citizens who desire a good
. Medicine, will find one in the justly cele-
brated Pills of Dr. Brandreth, which have per-
formcd cures upon thousands of helpless and
hopeless persons, after the usual scientific skill
of physicians had consoled them with the assu-
rance that they could do no more. The pro-
perties of these Pills, as an anti-bilious and
aperient medicine, are unrivalled; all who use
them recommend them; their virtues surpass
all eulogy, and must be used to be appreciated.
The weak and delicate will be'strengthened by
theu use, not by bracing, but by removing the
cause of weakness, the gross and corrupt hu-
mors of the body, They require no change in
the diet, or care of any kind. Plain directions
accompany each box, so that every one is his
own competent physician.

Brandireth's Pills.
Security to the Patrons of Brdndreth's Pills.
IE The New Labels on a Single Box of the
Genuine Brandreth's Pills, contains
5063 Letters!
-TN consequence of the great variety of coun-
terelt labels of pretended Brandreth's Pills,
and which, in many instances, sonearly resem-
. ble in outward appearance the genuine of the
old slyle, as often to deceive the unwary, Doer.
Brandreth, acting under a sense of duty to the
public, has employed those celebrated artists,
Messrs. Perkms and Durand, who have suc-
ceeded in producing, at great cost, three new
labels, from steel plates, of extreme difficulty
of execution, and of so complicate a nature, as
to amount to an impossibility of imitation, be-
ing considered by judges a master piece in the
art of engraving.
The border of the top, and also of the under
label, is composed of the most elaborate and
chaste patterns of lace-work. To crown the
climax of these beautiful labels, the paper upon
which they are printed, is previously printed
with red ink, after a design so exquisite and so
minute as to DEFY competition; the top and, the
under label each contain the words BENJA-
red ink nearly two. hundred times--the top and
under Label containing, therefore, upwards of
five thousand letters.
There is also upon the,top, the under, and
the side label, two signatures of Dr. Brandreth;
one being his regular signature, thus-B.
Brandreth; and the other, his full signature
Ihus-Reniamin Brandieth; both being fac-
similes of the writing of Dr. Brandreth, to imi-
tate which isforgery I
The Brandreth Pills having these labels
Upozm them, can be lelied upon as true antd
