From the Darien Herald.
FaRUITS AND SCENERY OF FLORIDA,-The
general appearance of Florida is uninteresting,
One half of the territory is an immense pine bar-
ren, where little is to be seen besides the pal-
metto, the myrtle and the pine. Here and there,
however, may be found 'hammocks' of live oak,
post oak and hickory; and by the borders of the
lakes and rivers are delightful groves of oranges
and figs. Our first approach to Florida was by
the conveyance of a yawl-boat, hired for the oc-
casion. Though it was the depth of winter, yet
the atmosphere was, as it had been for a fort-
night, singularly balmy and soft. Such air we
may believe the inhabitants of Elysian enjoy.
Our little sail being hoisted, the wind wafted us
with speed across the bottom of the river.
The St. John's is the most important river of
this Territory. Its source is among a chain of
lakes in the Middle Eastern District. These
lakes are accessible to sloops. They are often
deep, but of a living clearness and brilliancy.
In their depths dwell unnumbered fish of vari-
ous kinds-the trout, the flounder, and others.
Alligators dwell in these waters, and are some-
times found of the enormous length of 15 feet!
Their average size, however, is by no means so
great. During the heat of noon in winter, and
at all times in summer, they may be seen lying
upon the' sand-bars of the rivers and lakes,
(leisure loving monsters!) enjoying the repose
of almost perpetual silence arid warmth; indiffer-
ent to all wars' and political, tumults; Favagelv
desirous of young negroes; laughing at bulleisI
and ir-comtiniii' them as stubble, and wi'h 'dig-
nified dsgu-i' tLurnin from the crack of the rifle.
as though it were but the small voice of the
pop-gun.
They are tlie enemies of bathers. A boy
from one of the towns lying on one of the South-
ern rivers, while bathing, was attacked by one
of these 'ugly insects,' as they are laughingly
terimed by an 'ancient marine' of our acquain-
lance. The advances of the monster were un-
forseen. A shout from the companion of the
endangered youth failed to warn him from the,
spot,-and-my blood freezes while I write!-
lie rushed into the- very jaws of the water dem-
on before him. What an awful moment to the
young spectators was that! They saw their
companion struggling in the waves, his head
locked in the very jaws of the enemy. The
combatants sank. With admirable adroitness,
the youth seized the alligator by the eVe-holes,
forcing the balls instantly from the sockets.
With a fiend like howl, the monster retreated
lo 11)e bottorn of the river, while the unlucky
youth, blinded and drenched with blood, stag-
gered to the shore. This is no fancy sketch.
It occurred near Darien, in Georgia.* Other
encounters of this kind were communicated to
us. One more relation shall conclude our pres-
ent remarks upon this -suljct.:
Alligator vs. Steam. This was a forced, an
unavoidable combat, and a brief one. The
Captain of a Steamboat, while at his post, per-
ceived one of the inhabitants of the river push-
ijag his wav across, directly before the boat. At
its approach the animal sank, and rose imme-
diately before the wheel! He rushed at the
shaft, which struck him with great violence,
dragged him upwards in its revolution; and
flung him through the shivered boards of the
wheel-house, a mangled and quivering victim
upon deck. This anecdote was told us by the
Captain himself, and struck us as being very
horrible.
We might say some things further relating to
the alligator. We might tell how he swalloweth
pine knots previous to the lethargy of his winter
life, aid considereth them not i nferior to pastry
and pancakes: also, how excellently' well his
tail tasteth to the epicure, who c-ioke.'rl said tail
and considereth it equal to bass; furthermore,
how the ladies shudder at such feats and such
opinion, and consider it barbarism to devour any
portion of said 'varmint,'-with other remarks
oflike character. But we return fonr digressing
to the subject of our paper.
The scenery of Florida is not all uninterest-
ing. He who has seen from smne quiet nook
a graceful bend of the river bordered with or-
ange bowers and groves of the holly and mag-
nolia and oak, and (truly tropical and .siafelv)

WOODSTOCK, VERMONT, FRIDAY, MIAY 17, 1839.


torrents, and gliding away through the thickest
gloom with many murmurings and discordant
sounds. At some further time, the poet, look-
ing into these dark and misty caverns, may im-
agine, while he feels the inspiration of horror,
that these melancholy and subterraneous sounds
are the moans of the water-genii, lamenting that
the river amid whose spray they spread their
wings has left.the cypress shades and opeu sun-
shine to wander on lthouih the chilliness and
mist and suhless gloom of caverns.
Some of these Stygian waters rise and sink
with the tide, thereby indicating their connexion
with the sea. Lakes, once wide and beautiful
have sunk in a single night, leaving their beds
covered with the fish. During the present win-
ter a lake sank thus, leaving millions of fish
dancing upon land.-Cart loads of these were
carried off and' cured by the neighboring
'crackers,' (squatters and herdsmen.) The re-
mainder, putrifying, tainted the whole atmos-
phere for miles around, reminding the traveller
of tihe plagues of Egypt.
I was speaking of trees. Unanimously we
voted the magnolia to be the most beautiful.
The exquisite fragrance of its blossoms, and the
'imperial pride' and beauty of its foliage, have
made it a great favorite. The live oak attains,
however, to great size. We passed some groves
ceit.,ilv magnificent. When growing in the
low grounds, they are hung with dismal festoons
of moss. A contractor, furnishing timber for
naval purposes, informed me of an enormous
tree growing on the banks of a river. He meas-
ured it, and found it thirty feet to the first bough,
and thirty-six in circumference at base? He
compared its trunk to the shot tower at New
York. I regarded his assertions as exagera-
tion and extravagance of language, but was as-
sured by the planter over whose grounds its
mighty shadow moved, that the statement was
correct. 'This giant of the forest was beginning
to feel the inroads of decay. It was not cut, as
it was found hollow in the middle. These trees
are almost invariably hung with the festoonery
of the grape. The vines of the grape in Flor-
ida are sometimes of great size bearing abun-
dantly. From the fruit good wine has been
made. The a.cooata or Indian bread is a vine
which clambers up the forest trees. Its thorns
are very sharp and maligne'at. From the a7ort
the Indian- prepares a species of flour in taste
not unlike the flour made from potatoes. The
palmetto is a shrub which gives character to
the scenery. Its leaf is fan-shaped and beau-
tifully green.
The pine of Florida is the long leafed kind.
It grows sometimes to a great height, towering
above all" in lordly stateliness and strength.
When the wind rages, the roar of the pine for-
rest is indescribably grand. In Alcchua county,
the soil is generaHy rich; there the pine is often
enormous in stature, and its roots strike deep
into the fertile earth, so that the ploughman may
drive his plough close to the very trunk.
The cabbage palm resembles the palmetto in
its leaf, but it is a tree, and grows sometimes to
the heiglit of fifty feet. The trunk is pointed
with a thousand shafts of bark, shooting out like
bayonets. It resembles the cocoanut.
The orange is of three kinds-the sweet, the
bitter sweet and the sour. The latter are not'
unlike the lemon as to flavor. The first men-
tioned is the delicious fruit brought to the North
from the West Indies. The bitter sweet is most
abundant, and is certainly pleasant. Figs, white
and purple are found in the hammocks of Mid-
dle Florida, and are as agreeable as the cultiva-
ted fruit. Peaches are also found wild, strange
as it may seem. Perhaps the botanist may say
that they must have been introduced by the na-
tives-by the men who wandered through the
wilds of the territory, before the savage'had pos-
sessed the frozen ocean in his descent to the
temperate and tropical climes of America. The
cocoa nut has been introduced from Cuba, as
well as the plantain and banana, the myrtle or.
orange, the lemon and pine apple. Of the lat-
ter there are very few to be found, though the
soil and climate are highly favorable. "

TACT AND TALENT.-Talent is something,
but tact is every thing. Talent is serious, so-
ber, grave and respectable; tact is all that, and
more too. It is not a seventh sense, but the
life of all the five. It is the open eye, the quick
ear, the judging taste, the keen smell, and the
lively touch. Interpreter of all riddles-the
surmounter of all obstacles. It is useful in all
places, and at all times: it is useful in solitude,
for it shows a man his way into the world: it is
useful in society, for it shows himn his way through.
the world. Talent is power: tnet is skill. Tal-
erit is weight: tact is momentum. Talent knows
what to dr; tact knows how to do it. Talent
makes a man respectable: tact will make him
respected. Talent is wealth; tact is ready mon-
ey. For the practical purposes of life, tact car-
ries it nsiriil talent, ten to one.-There is no
want of dramatic tact or talent; hut they are
seldom together; so we have succcsfiil pieces
which are not respectable and respectable pieces
which are not suiccessfirl. Take them to the
bar, and 'let them shake their 1. ,rn. i curls at
each other in legal rivalry; talent sees its way
clearly; but tact is first at its journey's end,
Talent has many a compliment from the bench;
but tact touches fees from attorneys and clients.
Talent .Aneaks learnedly and logically; tact tri-
iumphantly. Talent makes thIe wrl 1 wonder
that it gets on no faster; tact excites astonish-
ment that it gets on so fast-the secret is, it has


no weight to carry; it makes n4 false steps; it
hits the right nail on the head: itloses no time;
it takes all hints and by keeping its eye on the
weathersock, is ready to tilke aidnarniige of any
wind that blows. I !
Take them into the church, talent has always
something worth hearing; tact is sure of abun-
dance of hearers. Talent mavy obtain a living;
tact will make one. Talent gets a good name,
tact gets a great one. Talent c'fnvinces; tact
converts. Talent is an 'honor to'rhe profession;,
tact gains honor from the profession.
Take them to court, talent feels its way; tact
makes its way. Talent commands; tact is obey-
ed. Talent is honored with approbation; tact
is blessed with preferment.
Place them in the Senate; talent has the car
of the house; but tact wins its heart, and gains
its votes. Talent is fit for employment, but tact
it fitted for it. It has a knack of slipping into
place, with-a sweet silence and gibness of move-
ment, as a billiard ball insinuates itself into the
pocket. It seems to know every thing, without
learning any thing, It has served an invisible
temporary apprenticeship. It wants no drilling.
It never ranks in the awkward squad. It has
no left hand, no deaf ear, no blind side. It puts
on no looks of wondrous wisdom, it has no air of
profundity, but plays with the'details of place,
as-dexterously as a well taught hand flourishes
over the keys of the piano forte. It has all the
air of common place, and all the.force and pow-
er of genius. It can change sides with a key
presto n1,0,' in-i-nt, and be at all points of the
compass, while talent is ponderously and lean-
edly shifting a single point. Talent calculates
clearly, reasons logically, and utter its oracles
with all the weight ofjustice and reason. Tact
refutes c.rinradiciing, puzzles the profound with-
out profundity, and without wit outwits the wise.
Set them together on a race for popularity, pen
in hand, and tact will distance talent by half the
course. Talent brings to market that which
is wanted; tact produces that which is wished
for. Talent instructs, tact enlightens--Talent
leads where no one follows, tact follows where
the humor leads. Talent is pleased that it ought
to have succeeded; tact is delighted that it has
succeeded. Talent toils for posterity, which
will never repay it; tact catches the passion of
ih. paying h'our. Talent builds for eternity;
tact on a short lease, and 'gets good interest.
Talent is a fine thing to talk about, and be proud
of, but tact is useful, portable, always alive, al-
ways marketable. It is the talent of talents, the
availableness of resources, the applicability of
power, the eye ofdiscrimination, the right hand
of intellect.-London Atlas.

OccurATioNS OF A FUTURE LIFE.-We appre-
hend that very vague and low ideas are gener-
ally entertained with regard to thd happiness of
heaven. The tree of life is thought to bear but
one kind of fruit. The state of the blessed is
imagined-not as a state in which every fac-
ulty may have full development and free scope
-but as a narrow round of pleasures indeed,
yet of pleasures the same to all and always.
We often hear the life of heaven spoken of as a
life spent in singing praises day and night with-
out ceasing.-Now, though devotion constitutes
the purest enjoyment of which man is capable,
the immediate act of devotion would grow tedi-
ous, unless the mind could roam abroad, and
seek new materials for pious thought, new sub-
jects for praise, new fiIl t.. feed the flame of
love. This is the case with the christian on
earth. A life of abstract devotion has no charms
for him. But it is his aim and his delight to seek
out in the course of nature, in the ways of prov-
idence, in the haunts of men, in the various
post-s of duty, themes for praise, thanksgiving
and love; and when he approaches the altar of
his God, he lays upon it an offering which eve-
ry scene, every circumstance of life, has con-
tributed to render rich and fiag 'ant. Thus must
it be in heaven. The tree of life must bear di-
vers kinds of fruits, to suit the tastes, to expand
the minds, to cherish the devotion of those who
have passed through unlike scenes of earthly dis-
cipline. The reason why we are told so little
in the- Bible about the joys reserved for the
righteous, is, not that they are in their nature
inconceivable, but that they are in their variety
inexhaustable, so that,.should they be set forth
in writing, even the world itself could not con-
tain the books that should be written.- Rev.
Mr. Peabody.
LORD Dua-HAMI'S R.IPORT RELATING TO CAN-
ADA.-This report is more ho,,rri- ll- and com-
plimentary to the policy and institution of the
United States, than any document whlichl has
ever emanated from a member of the BHrii-i
,, r- r.r m.'rt In juI fi,-i.. i'in ofhis course and
pnlh in Cm nada, it be. -,,,v necessary to con-
trast and compare the United States with the
British Provinces. Many filets are mentioned
and for the first time disclosed by a Governor
General, to Parliament. The statements show
in a very striking manner the bearing and work-
ing of free institutions upon.the prosperity of the
people. One of the mrst important is the fact,
that slxty per' cent. ofdh tin rrgrant population to
the Brillsh Provinces, rhlil..nghl the expense is
in re[inny instances paid by government, passes
into the United States, and many others are pre-
paring to emigrate as soon as they can dispose
.ifl hei, property. It is also stated, that the
whole line of the frontier, from the Gulf of St
Lawrence to Michigan, exhibits the-greatest
contrast which can be conceived of. On the


I


j


one side you see the highest degree of cultiva-
tion, fl.'rishing villages, and a dense popula-
tion,-on the other side, where the land isequal-
.ly good, the country with little or no advance in'
improvements. Even wild lands in the State of
Vermont, upon the frontier are worth five dol-
lars the acre, and upon the Canadian side one
dollar. Upon the whole extent of the frontier,
lands are worth upon one side from five hun-
dred to a thousand. per cent. more than the other.
The causes of this great superiority he attri-
butes partly to our free institutions of' govern-
ment, and to the energy of the people, but main-
ly to the great defects in the existing forms of
government in the British Provinces. Among
the most prominent which he enumerates, is in
LowerCanada, the general prevalence of
French law, with seignioral rights, but slightly
modified for two hundred years. No public ap-
propriation is made for common schools, so that
not one in twenty can read or write. To.police
or municipal regulations similar to those of the
United States.-Boston Courier.

From tkhe Knickerbocker,
A ScENE OF THE CRUSADEs.-lt was sunset.
The rich mellow light streamed in a thousand
varigated hues over Olivet's green top, the ho-'
ly city, and the'Christian's camp, till at last it
met Bethsaida's wave, blushing and sparkling
in its embrace. Not a ripple disturbed its mir-
rored stillness, save when the bright-winged
bird stopped to lave its wing, or taste its refresh-
ng coolness. Above, was the deep blue sky,
so bright and clear that fancy could almost soar
to the regions4)f the blest-could 'almost catch
the harmonies of heaven. All was calm and
beautiful. Even the stern sentinel, pacing his
lonely round, for a moment relaxed -his iron
brow, and stopped to gaze upon the surround-
ing loveliness of that hour. But a far brighter
sight met his eye, as he gazed upward, and saw
the consecrated folds of the sacred banner float-
ing in triumph over the walls and battlements of
Jerusalem,. Yes, that day had seen the city
theirs, and the knightly, the good, the gallant
Godfrey, as he knelt to kiss the tomb he had
rescued, was seen to dash away a tear of min-
gled gratitude, penitence and veneration, end
then to lift his hands in-mental adoration to that
Reing6. who ins ver the same, whether amid the
burning sands of Syria, or the icy regions oftihe
pole. Thus should heroes conquer. Thus did
the Crusaders. Blame not hastily their misdi-
rected zeal. Censure not their holy enthusi-
asm Profane not with sacriligious touch the
moss-grown tombs where their ashes sleep.
Their faults were the faults of their age-their
virtues all their own.

GOOD RULES FOR A STUDENT.-Dr. Walker
gave the following advice to his friend Mr.
Royce-Ist, always to study,standing-2d, nev-
er study close to a window-3d, never to go to
bed with cold feet. A word of night studies.
Thuranus tells us of Alcidalius, that his exces-
sive application to study, was the occasion of his
untimely death, and that his sitting up at nights
brought upon him a distemper which carried him
offin three days, at the age of twenty-eight.
Lord Bacon greatly impaired his health, by this
unseasonable labor, as Hervey and Toplady;
and it is said of Dr. Owen, that he would gladly
have exchanged all the learning he had acquired
by night studies for the health it had cost him.
"Nocturnal studies,' says Dr. Knox, "too long
and too closely continued, seldom fail to injure
the eyes, and together with them, the whole
nervous system.-They who are impelled by ne-
cessity to work by night and by day, must in-
deed submit with patience to their destine; but
that he who is master of time, should chain him-
self down to a more exhausting toil than the la-
bor of the galley slave, is a species of folly, ap-
proaching to insanity. And, indeed, I know of
nothing more likely to produce madness, than
intemperate study, with want of exercise, want
of air, and want of sleep."

Sparks, in thle life of Washington, speaking
of his intrepidity, says:
"A person of lawless habits and reckless
character had frequently entered upon the
grounds near Mount Vernon, and shot ducks
and other game. More than once he had been
warned to desist and not to return. It was his
custom to cross the Potomac in a canoe, and
descend the creek to some obscure place where
he could be concealed from observation. One.
day hearing the discharge of a musket, Wash-
ington mounted his horse, and rode in the di-
rection of the sound. The intruder discovered
his approach, and had just time to gain the ca-
noe and p'ish it from the shore, when Washing-
ton emerged from the bushes, at the distance of
a few yards. The man raised his gun, cocked
it, pointed it at him, and took deliberate aim;
but, without a moment's hesitation, he rode in-
to the water, sized the prow of the canoe drew
it on land, disarmed his antagonist, and inflict-
ed on him a chastisement which he never again
chose to run the hazard of encountering."

The influence of the good man ceases not at
death; hie, as Ihe visible agent, is removed, but
the light and influence of his example still re-
main; and moral elements of this world will long
show the traces of their vigor and purity; just as
the western sky, after the sun has set, still be-
trays theglowing traces of the departed orb.


[NUMBER 7.

POLITICAL INTEGRITY.-The borough efHull,
in the reign of Charles 11, chose Andrew Mar-
vell, a young gentleman of little or no fortune,
and maintained him in London for the service
of the public. His understanding, integrity
and spirit, were dreadful to the then infamous
administration. Persuaded that he would be
theirs for properly asking, they sent his old
school fellow, the Lord Treasury Danby, to re-
new acquaintance with him in his garret. At
parting, the Lord Treasurer, out of pure affec-
tion, slipped into his hand an order upon the
Treasury for 10001 and then went to his chariot.
Marvell, looking at the paper, calls for the treas-
urer,-"My Lord, I request another moment."
They went up again to the garret, and Jack,
the servant boy was called. "Jack,child, what
had I for dinner yesterday?" "'Don't you re-
member, sir, you had the little shoulder of mut-
ton. that you ordered me to bring from a woman
in the market?" "Very right, child. What
have I to-day?" "Don't you know, sir, that
you bid me lay by the blade bone to broil?"
"Tis so, very right, child, go away. My Lord,
do you hear that? Andrew Marvell's dinner is
provided-there's your piece of paper. I want
not. I know the sort of kindness you intended.
I live here to serve my constituents; then minis-
try may seek men for their purpose. 1 aa not
one.'

Tea in Russia.--The Russians are the most
inveterate tea drinkers out of China; and with
.such excellent tea as they have, the passion is
quite excusable. Tea in Russia and tea in Eng-
land are as different as peppermint-water and
senna. With us it is a dull, savorless dose; in
Russia it is a fresh, invigorating draught.
They account for the difference by stating that,
as the sea air injures tea, we get only the leaves,
bht none of the aroma of the plant, while they,
'on the other hand, receiving all their tea over-
land, have it just as good as when it left the
Celestial Empire. Be the cause what it may,
there can be no doubt of the fact that tea in
Russia is infinitely superior to any ever found
in other parts of Europe, Englishmen are
taken by surprise on tasting it. Even those
who never cared for tea before, drink on during
their whole stay in Russia.

One of the most extraordinary things in life is
to see the things that people are ashamed of,
and the thin.rs that they are not ashamed of.
To see that there are men of sense and educa-
tion ashamed of not being'rich-ashamed of net
being able to keep a carriage-ashamed that in
the division of worldly things, enough has not'
fallen to their share, to enable them to enjoy ex-
pensive pleasures-to wear expensive clothes,
&c. One may excuse them for being sorry--
but not for being ashamed.
There is something extremely beautiful amid
this world's idle and hollow pomp-amid its
heartless and wearying show, its parade, bought
with tears and crimes. There is something ex-
tremely beautiful in the sight of a man poor and
not ashamed of being so-ofone with just enough
to live upon, with industry and economy, and
contented to pass through his pilgrimage with-
out any appeal to the common sentiments of the
crowd.

The Journal of Commerce intimates that some
cunning trader, taking advantage of the Silk.
worm Fever, has been supplying the people of
New Jersey with shad's eggs, at a considerable
reduction of price. The mulberry treesin that
quarter will probably be laden with shad next
year.

Laco o n.

The schemes in the Church of Christ are'deeply
to be lamented on many accounts, by those who
have any regard for all that is valuable and worth
preserving amongst men; and although we are
willing to hope and believe with Paley, that the
rent has not reached the foundation, yet are these
differences (though not in essentials) most particu.
larly to be lamented, because they prevent the full
extension of the glorious light of the gospel through-
out the world. These differences amongst our-
selves,4 furnish those whom we would attempt to
convert, with this plausible, and to them I fear un-
answerable argument;-with what face can you
Christians attempt to make us converts to your
faith; when you have not yet decided amongst
yourselves what Christianity is? Surely it will be
time enough to make proselytes of others, when
you yourselves are agreed. For Calvin damns
the Pope, and the Pope damns Calvin;, and the
only thing in which they agree, is in damning So-
cinus, while Socinus in his turn, laughs at both, and
believes neither.
The mob, like the ocean; is very seldom agitated
without some cause superior and exterior to itself;
but (to continue the simile) both are capable of
doing the greatest mischief after the cause which
first set them in motion has ceased to act.
The victims of ennui paralyze| all the grosise
feelings by excess, and torpify all the finer by di
use and inactivity. Disgustedwith this world a'
indifferent about another, they at last lay viol'
hands upon themselves and assume no small cr
for the sang froid with which they meet d(

WOODSTOCK, MAY 17, 1839.

STATE CONVENTION.
The Montpelier Watchman of the 13th instant
contains the following article relative to the Con-
vention, which is to be held on the 27th day of
June next.
The Whig State Convention will be holden
at Woodstock, on the 27th of June, and the no-
tice therefore will be soon issued in due form. We
take this occasion to repeat, th-it the approaching
convention will be the mrs.t important of any
holden for years. There are delicate questions
to be decided, and the loco focos are already
counting upon making much out of divisions in
the Whig. ranks.. They must be disappointed-
they shall be disappointed, if the Whigs prepare
for the crisis with wisdom, and with the spirit of
true patriotism. Especially would we invoke
-the "bone and muscle" of the Northern Whigs
not to think of staying away because it would be
somewhat more inconvenient than usual for them
to attend. The good people of Woodstock and
of Windsor County, will undoubtedly be ready
.to welcome them with a hearty good will. As
far as possible, let business be arranged with a
view of sparing a few days to this convention.
The admonitions of the Watchman should be
regarded. They emanate from a view of the
whig party as it now exists in this state,-from
an apprehension that there may be created dis-
sentions among them in regard to collateral ques-
tions; from a knowledge of the determined effort
of the Van Buren men to create discord among
the whigs, by lending their aid to bring those col-
lateral questions in collision with political con-
siderations,-and from the fact that the electioi-
eering campaign of "The Democracy" has been
open ever since last winter. Every day is "train-
ing day." with some of their papers, and every
effort, which art and ingenuity can suggest, may
be expected by those who raise the gathering cry
"Smilie and bank reform." Associations have.
becofne fashionable. "Bay State Associations,"i
in Massachusetts are regular nurseries of loco-'
focos and democratic associations are recommend-
ed as suitable means of maturing plans for carry-
ing elections in other places. Probably the good,:
sense of the people of this state will not counte-
nance the formation of societies expressly politi-
cal. They have had "line upon line and precept'
upon precept" upon this subject, and will, prob-.
ably, hold in defiance and contempt all the ener-:
gies,.that can be mustered by means of banded'
associations.
But with unanimity of action and effort, the
whigs have nothing to dread from -the combined
influence -:.f Bay State A.sociilion., Democrat-
ic Associations, Tammany Societict .or any other
er machinery of the party that is determined to;
"rule or ruin." -On the altar of public good;
must be -'acrilic,'- every consideration inconsis-
tent with that course, which has been fearlessly'
and sutccessfully.pursued by the whigs of the Uni-
ted States, in opposition to the grasping and do mr
ineering policy of the Jackson school. The
whigs must come together with a determination
to do that, which hall -ub;,rve the good of-the
people; and in t!i, deAliie lo promote the peace,
and prosperity of the country, to carry forward
its plans .of public improvement, to foster individ-
ual enterprise and to protect every man in the
pursuit of his own lawful business, local prepos-
session, and sectarian bias must be left at home..
Though it be true that the conflict, which the
whigs have sustained has been arduous, 'and
though -it be true that they have not attained to
a majority in the councils of the nation,-in oth-
er words, they have not been the party in power,
.-ttil, every heart, actuated byproper motives,
must feel grateful for such a measure of success
as has been sufficient to check the career of the
administration in a course which was leading, to
still greater troubles than we had experienced by
the sinister policy 9f Gen. Jackson upon the rev-
enues and currency of the country. That the
whigs have been excluded from all-the lucrative
offices of the government is a'secapidary affair
altogether. That they have checked the .cpurse
of profligate office-holders, exposed the corrup-
tion and defalcation of those who were revelling
in their thousands of "abstracted" treasures, and
raised a warning note, which is striking terror
into the hearts of divers "over drawn" deposito-
ries of public moneys and causing their detection,
is a matter of some consequence and one which
should stimulate them to further exertion.
The immediate business of the state conven-
tion will be the nomination of candidates for.the
offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor and
.Treasurer. The pay of these officers is not suf-
ficient to tempt the avarice of any man. The
governorr receives a less salary than the governor
Sany other state in the union if we except
'lode Island, which is a state mustering only
-'regiments of militia. The governor of Ver-
1t receives almost six hundred dollars less
thhe same officer in Delaware, a state enti-
t eonly one representative in congress. The o
stattNew Hampshire- is held up .as the very b
ink: pattern of "The Democracy," and its -
g receives more than fifty per cent more
salary th te governor of Vermont. So long I
as the y of our governor remains as it is, c


custom should not require of him to give up h
accustomed occupations, but let him pursi
them as before. The office of Lieutenant Go
ernor is one which requires a ready and discer
ing mind. That officer, as president of the se
ate, is placed in a conspicuous station. His p;
and emoluments'are also moderate. Whoev
may hereafter be called to that station, the duti
t of the chair of the senate will seldom bedischar
ed with greater ability than they have alrea(
f been, by the presiding officer of that body. TI
salary of the office of treasurer is wholly ina
n equate to the labors he is required to perform.

: competent clerk could be procured to perform
y: two thirds of the labor which the treasurer has
do, for the treasurer's salary, aside from the fa
that this officer has to procure very heavy bond
These considerations are merely incidental.-
We are bound to select competent men for tl
stations,-and we will do it:-and the whigs wi
meet as whigs only, leaving at home all othi
partidalities and predilections. Remember this
the call of the country and let the rallying cry':
not the name of some man, whom he would exal
but "OuR 'COUNTRY, OUR WHOLE COUNTRY AN
NOTHING BUT OU COUNTRY."

ABOLITION.
"A writer in the Woodstock Mercnry, of May S3
among sundry other equally wise and correct thing
says-
"So far from being self-evident, we believe it is ni
true in fact, that all men are created equal. *
All these [the inequalities of men] are the results oftl
ordering 9fProvidence, and who' shall say that it
not done in wisdom? Nor can these different cond
tions of men be reduced to a common level, by indivih
uals or associations, until they can make that straigl
which God has made crooked, until the Etheopian ca
'change his skin, and the leopard his spots."
"How grossly mistaken was Thomas Jefferson an
how the signers of tle Declaration ofIndependence di
lie! What a plity that this learned philanthropist ha
not lived in time of tins revolution, that lie might hav
disabused the public mind, and taught the patriots
'76 that according to the orderingss of Providence
they ought not to maintain their rightsand defend the
liberties !-Is it possible that. Jefferson, and Washina
ton, and the whole host of our revolutionary, father
and i.: ci, ',.' ofthe o Tnitud States, from their da
down to the present, have been mistaken-perhaps the
have': but there is no authority that is not so easily di!
posed of. "Of oneood hathod hatod iade all nations t

"It is the order of nature and of God, that the bein

Whether tbhe above article will claim immortality fo
its wit or its logic is a question for the author.to decide

Thomas Jefferson has said so. lie did not m.'an tha
all were created equally black and equally white. Hi
did not mean that all were created with equal capaci
ties. The declaration of independence is to be read
like every other declaration, with reference to the gen
eral tenor and srope of tile paper. If Mr. Jefferson
meant to say that no mai ouglitto be held in servitude
then did his practice disagree with his profession, fo:
like other great men of tlie south lie was aslave-holder
We are quite free to say that if we were to frame a de
clarationofrightsor constitution for any country, whicl
was to begin its government anew, we would insist up-
on a total prohibition of slavery in all its forms. So w(
would insist that the majority of votes should always
govern, and that in no case should a minority be per.
mitted to control the appointment ofthe highest officers
of the country. But Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Adams
Gen. Washington and Gen. Hamilton and all others
who had any agency in framing the government undei
which we live, knew full well that compromises music
be made and apparent inconsistencies must be submit.
ted to; so the constitution does directly recognize the
institution of slavery by providing a representation for
states containing slaves by a different ratio from. that
provided for other states; and it also recognizes the
right of Rhode Island and Delaware to carry a weight
in the election of President and Vice Prusident equal
to states containing forty times the amount of popula-
tionr of Rhode Island or Delaware. These are rank in-
consistencies--fla.grant violations of the very first ax-
iom of a republican government, that the majority
should govern. And yet a proposition to deprive
Rhode Island and Delaware of their constitutional
rights, would meet with very little favor, tho' the right
be ever so anti-republican, because it is secured to them
in the charter,--it is so written in the bond. Now
when the evil of slavery is found to be very grievous
and good men are studiously and prayerfully seeking
some method to avert the danger, which seems to be irm-
pending over us, here comes a fraternity who give out
that they have discovered the remedy and no matn need
longer to ponder upon it-nay more, any farther con-
sideration or delay is sinful; we mius;. not longer con-
sider but up and act. How? Why slavery must he
immediately abolished. This sounds well--and seems
the very thing we desire. If we fall in with this, with-
out further reflection and go forward, join a society and
commit ourselves, we shall, probably, gather conilirma-
tipn by every step we take and coimeI to regard those,
who will not take so many steps, as,perverse and per-
haps eacl tijem pro slavery men, or give thliedmr some olh-
er equally ingenious and ingenuous appellation. And
perhaps, with the wit and candor of the article above,
wve might say the next thing to be expected from a man
who will not join us will be to assert the divine right
f kings. But suppose we stop to inquire, What is to
become of the slaves when they a-e emancipated ? A
greatt difficulty to be apprehended, evegnnow, is that
hey will overrun .tme southern country, and *j.f .hey

In commingle J l t i offices of society or government with
o i'eedomn and wjiltout distinction. But the idea of colo-
nization awakelps in the more zealous abolitionist all
sorts of hostility-and he comes forth, at once, with
to vizor down and lance at rest, ready todo battle to the
ct death. What,send.the colored people to Africa? Cer-
s.. tainly not, without their consent. They came from
Africa. "O0 Afrida, land of woes and wounds." No
e country has been o spoiled and none so mucli demands
our compassion. .But the project ofcolonizatiou is con-
ll' damned, because It is ineffectual. True, in the hands
er of the humane and the generous now embarked in it, it
is! is ineffectual to tjle great end of colonizing the entire
ae' black population of the Union. Byt when an individ-
Sual leads fortll,.i aspiritofliberality, which if proper-
Sly seconded, would produce relts, tsthe cnterprize is'
scoffed at, by the friend of immediate abolition ; and a
gentleman in this state, who within a few months, has
i made a proposition, reflecting great credit not only oi-
his roagnanimtity, but his humanity, has been visited
d, with a regular attack in a public newspaper in the shape
s, of a series of nudribers by an anonymous correspondent.
But if the means now employed effect but little in
the way of taking from this country, the black popula-
Ie tion, let us "despise not the day of small things." The
is energies of this nation, if turned to the work of colo-
d- nizing the :..;r"t', as they have the indians, could soon
ht effect great things. Find for the African.race a con-
n genial climate, either on the coast of their "father land"
or if that be not the country for them, purchase for
d them a section of the Union, purchase their freedom
id
d and put them in the enjoyment of it. Let abolition
e be conducted in a fair and open manner, not by entic-
of ing slaves to run away, for they are by a statute law of
ir the United States, declared fugitives, in such ease and
g. liable to be restored; but let the slave, if liberated, be
s, placed in a better condition and not in a condition
y worse tha qilayery.
s NoY i.ce so much seems necessary to be done, pre,.
o liminary to abolitio r ; since there are in the opinion of(
of a considerable class of the community, constitutional;
l- and legal objection to immediate abolition against the
consent of slave-owners, and since the condition of
-s
h1 slaves, if emancipated, would not be improved, without
the necessary provision for their.subsistence, as a com-
,d unity by themselves, we do claim of our abolition
a. brethren the right and privilege of the exercise of our
g deliberate.opinion, in the conI.lusion, that immediate
of abolition, without some provision, like what is above
e specified for the colored population to be made free,
s would result in confusion and be injurious to both
blacks and whites.

THE PHYSICIAN'S CANE.-It was formerly the prac-
r twice among physicians to use a caneswith a'hollow head,
* the top of which was of gold, pierced with. holes, like
a pepper box. This top contained a small quantity of
aromatic powder, or of snuff : and on entering a house,
or room where a disease supposed to be infectious pre-'
e failed, the doctor would strike his cane on the floor to
s agitate the powder, and then apply it to his nose.--
- Hence all the old prints of physicians represent them

us, some of whom carry enormous canes. We know
not what the heads of the canes contain;-probably to-
t bacco.

Xllbany Charter Election.-At the recent city election
in Albany the whigs have been successful. There are
five wards in the city. The aldermen and assistants iti
four of the wards are whigs; in one Van Buren by a
majority of two or three votes. The supervisors in all.
the wards are whig. The whig majority in the city is
about 360.

For the Mercury,.
The Mormon bible was written for amusement as a
fictitious, romantic history. It fil into thie hands of an
imposter; was published as true, and the result is known.
The deluded fanatics trusted to principles as true,
which were false and hence their delusion, and their
ruin. The advocate for levelling all distinctions in so-
'ir-t ari.l for a division of property may feel strong ir
,, i'ng his claim, because, as he believes, he was crea-
ted equal to those, now his superiors. We see here the
propriety of recurring to first principles. In my com-
iniinication for the Mercury ofMay 3rd. it was attempt-
ed to be shown in. the first place, that it was not selfj
evident, that all men were created equal, and in the
next place that the proposition was not true in fliat.
Should it bn urged, that the declaration then considered
was modified by the following setence, "that they aire
endowed by their creator, with certain unalienable
rights, that among them are life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness," still we say, that the proposition has
nothingof self evidence about it. Is it not possible,
'that a man may lay down his life for his friend?
"Peradventure for a good man some would even-dare


to die." Is not the most illustrious and astonishing act
of benignity upon record, an act of self devotion to
death, for the good of others.- And can it be said that


the act was not a free one5 that there were not motives,
which actuated the determination of wisdom & benigni-
ty itself? Nor is it a rare octiurrence for men to devote
themselves to death, for the a),vation ofthleir" families,
friends or country. It is said that General K eleb. was
commanded by Bonaparte to occupy a certain pass,
where his death would be the inevitable esnjt. He
cheerfully took his position, and sacrificed himself and
men -for thii salvation of the main army. In pauch cases
life is as freely surrendered as an article of property.
The consideration is sufficient to induce the surrender
on a deliberate balancing of the pros and cons. This
we call alienating a man's life. And here to prevent
all uncertainty about our meaning, we will proceed to
define the terms. It is manifestly true, that a great
proportion of the mIetaphysical wrangling, which has
divided our world has 'arisen from the misapprehension
of the meaning of .yords and-terms, and of the very
proposition, copaerning which the dispute originated.
It is hence tr'e.in fact, that both parties ai, lit that
is in their understanding of the meaning of the proposi-
tion, The importance of explicit, intelligible defini-
tion must be therefore quie apparent. The word
rights we will suppose requires no defining. Thie ad-;
jective aliienable may lie best learned from the definition
of the verb to alienate, whence it is derived. To alien-
ate is to transfer the property of any thing to another.
The inseperable preposition in is here added, and has
the force of a privative or negitiye and ti.e two sen-
tences then take the meaning of thie following proposi-
tion. viz. It is self evident. that all men are created
equal, and are endowed by their creator, with certain
rights, which cannot be transferred-to others, among
which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Now is it self evident, that life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness can neither of them he transferred to'oth-
ers? We have seen that a selfevident proposition re-
quires no argument or proof aliunde of its truth; as that
the whole is equal to all its parts, &c. in short, that it
is so evident, that nothing can make it more so,and that
all reasonable minds must assert to its truth on the mere
propounding of the proposition. Can this be said of the
sentence under consideration? Most manifestly not.
If so, then its truth is not self evident. But can its truth
be shown by argument? There need he no dispute.
about the meaning of alienable. The definition given
above is sustained by the authority of thie best :. ,.'_.g.
raphers. Can a man then transfer the possession, con-
trol a disposition of his life to the disposing and order-
ing ofanother? To surrender the power of controlling
and directing a thing, which we once had, to the con-
trol and d; .:-..ru of mnolther is, to every conceivable
purpose, an alie.nati.on to the use of that -other. Ifso,
then life is nit i.ailiicnabitle. The same reasoning, a
fortlore, will demonstrate' that liberty may be alienated.
Who can doubt this and witness the numberless instan-
ces of persons, submitting themselves to the absolute
command ofothers? It may indeed be for a longer or
shorter time, but it is pro tauto an alienation. Mr.
Christian, in his notes on Blackstone, says "if a man
can contract to serve for one year, there seems to be
no reason to prevent his contracting to serve for 100
y.ears." May not a man be. free and yet dedicate his
life and liberty to the service of his Country? Could
lie be free and yet be restrained in this particular ? If
then our definitions and reasoning be correct, life and
e-'r, ace..not- iali.Utiable. Instead of-this, we -have
lioli reason and authority for saying, that the affirma-
tive oftle proposition is not only, not self-evident, but
it is not true.
We shall not attempt to prove that the pursuit of hap-
piness can be alienated. This cannot be until a man
can divest himself of his will. Every voluntary act of
a man's life, is as to him, done in pursuit of happiness.
To alienate the pursuit of happiness, (if the term be ad-
mtissable) would imply an abandonment of the will, a
transmutation of the man, a deprivation of free agency,
-in short a degradation of a free moral, accountable

agent to the condition of bruit matter. However dif-
ferent men may act in the pursuit of happiness, still
when they do act, they are moved by what, to them at
the time, appears to be the greatest good.. The pursuit
of happiness is inseparable from all voluntary agents.
Whether this truth is self evident, it is not material to
inquire.
We deduce the following conclusions from. the pre-
ceeding remarks, viz.
1st. That all men are not created equal, .but, that
they are created unequal in a great variety of particu-
lars.
2d. That-trom this inequality in their creation, and
the-attendant circumstances of their early being, is de-
rived that difference of subsequent condition, which
diversifies our entire race.
3d. That while this inequality obtains, the strong
will govern the weak and the intelligent the simple, by i
a law as certain as the laws of mechanics.

by the P'utector in person, was entirely destroy-
ed by the Chili Peruvian army at Yungay on
the 20th inst. The Protector and several of the
Provincial officers arrived at Lima on the 24th
inst., and have since gone to the South. We
expect the Chilians daily, their advance guard
having been for two days within fifteen leagues
of the city. No opposition will be made to their
entrance.
The castles of Callao have a garrison of about
one thousand men, and are being hastily pro-
visioned for a seige. Most of the foreign mer-
chants (ourselves amongst the number) are em-
barking as many of their goods now at Callao
as they can before the castles are invested.
The goods to our consignment will be depos-
ted on board the American brig Richard Alsop,
J. E, Engle, master, to remain in the buy of
Callao, or proceed to Chorrilos as may be de-
termined on hereafter.
We consider the destruction of the Federal
army at Yungay (for it is complete),as a death
blow to thle Confederation, and hope it may lead
o general pacification of the States composing
t, and a peace with Chili. its immediate ef-
fects will be to remove the Seat of War from
Noith Per;u, for the Castles of Callao are the
only forts which can he held by the Protector,
and they will p,rof,abaly be reduced in a few
veeks. In a f-iiw l.ays we shall probably be
ble,to judge of the probable result of this deci-
jive and unexpected defeat ofthe Protectoral.
The Whigs of Connecticut have called a
state Convention to assemble at Hartford on the
5th inst. to select Delegates to the National
Convention at Harrisburg, to nominate a'Wh'g
candidate foir the Presidency.
The Legislature of Michigan, which adjonrn-
-d on the l21st of last month, made the following
ppropritions fior the continuation of works of
internal lmprovement-$ 100,000 on the sontb-
rn rail road --100,000 on thie central rail road
--40,000 on the northern rail ronds-60,000
n the Clinton and Kalnmaz'o canal-$25,000
or the improvement of Grand river.

rnet 1 member of'Congress.from, and Gover-
orofOhio, died ant his residence, Fruit Hill,
ear thimt city rn thIe 2Sth nit. in the. 68th year
f his age ie was one of the earliest settlers

lution. Of late years lie suffcri.d with a cm-
lication of diseases, which rendered death a
welcome relief.-Chlieoithe Gazette.

I feel a newer life in every gale;
The winds, that fan the flowers,
And with their welcome breathing fill the sai
Tell of serener hours-
Of hours that glide unfelt away
Beneath the sky of May,
The spirit of the gentle south-wind calls
From his blue throne of air,
And where his whispering voice in music falls
Beauty is budding there;
The bright ones of the valley break
Their slumbers and awake.
The waving verdure rolls along the plain,
And the wide forest weaves,
To welcome back its playful mates again,
A canopy of leaves;
And from its darkening shadow floats
A gush of trembling notes.
Fairer and brighter spreads the reign of May ;
The tresses of the wood
With the light dallying of the west-wind play;
And the fnll-brimming floods,
As gladly to their goal they run
Hail the returning sun.

LINES-FROMrT TH1 CERMAN OF LAMITAR.
BY J. G. WHITTIER.
Thought after thought, ye thronging rise,
Like spring-doves from the startled wood,
Bearing like them your sacrifice
Of music unto God!
And shall these thoughts of joy and love
Come back again no more to me-
Returning like the patriarch's dove
Wing-weary from the eternal sea?
To bear within my longing arms
The promise bough of kindlier skies,
Plucked from the green immortal palms
Which shade the bowers of Paradise ?
Child of the sea, the mountain stream
From its dark cavern hurries on,
Ceaseless by night and morning's beam,
By evening's star, and noontide's sun-
Until at last it sinks to rest,
O'er wearied, in the waiting sea,
And moans upon its mother's breast-
So turns my soul to Thee.


The Sunshine of the Heart.
The sunshine of the heart be mine,
Which spreads a charm around;
Where'er it sheds its ray divine
Is all enchanted ground!
No fiend of care may enter there,
Though fate employ her art:
Her darkest powers all bow to thine,
Bright sunshine of the heart!
Beneath the splendor of thy ray
E7ow lovely all is made !
Bright fountains in the desert play,
And palm.trees east their. hade,
Thy morning light is rosy bright,
And when thy beams depart,
Still glows with charms thy latest rays,
Sweet sunshine of the heart!




FAIRBANK'S PLATFORnM SCALEs.-We kno'
of no article or instrument in use, which comn
pares in importance with the platform balance
It is now in very general use in the commercial
community. Transactions by weight, amount
ing to millions of dollars daily, are regulated b
means of these instruments, and every class o
our citizens have a direct interest in the results
How important, then, that the article use
should be perfect and uniform in its operation,
Every body knows the perplexity and difficult
formerly arising from the want of uniformity i
the standards of weights in different parts of th
Union. This inconvenience has been in a great
measure dissipated by the introduction, in all th
states of the Union, of Fairbank's platform
scales. These being adjusted to the New York
standard, the emporium of trade, and being fit
ted, with great precision, upon a principle a
one correct and durable, under the inspection o
the original inventor, have gone far in establish
ing that uniformity, in relations to weights, whicl
has been the subject of legislative debates, both
in congress and in several of the state legisla-
tures.
It may not be known to all our readers tha
compound balances are sometimes liable to
variation in their own results, so that a heav)
draught, when divided and subdivided, and
weighed thus upon the same scale, will give a
different result;-dhowing a defect in the princi-
ple or the construction. Others are sometimes
seen, whose bearing points are of cast-iron, and
of course, when subjected to hard use, soon
wear, and become inimpei srt.
These and other ,,ijecui.mav we have reason
to know, do not apply to the portable balances
made by the Messrs F.m Lbar.nkil. When sub-
jected to the severest T---, -,.they have always
been found lIIll to an ncr th.: relree-.-rtati.n of
the manufactures; and we have no hesitation ini
saying, that the confidence so genei:illv enter-
tained in the unrivalled accuracy of these bal-
antces is merited. A medal was awarded to the

O R INDIAN PURGATIVE, ol the North American C,
lege of Uienlth; established in Washington,D. C., Ja
uaryS 8, 1838, FOR THE C3nRs OF ALL DISEASE.
The beautiful and simple theory of one disease and o
remedy, as practised by our native Indians, and advocate
by lihe Northi American College of Health, is beginning n(
to be generally understood. Thousands who have heretofc
niintained the necessity of a peculiar medicine for every pi
ticular disease, now as strenuously :contes that as all o
maladies proceed from one cause,so one medicine capable
removing that cause, will cure every disease incildeat to mn
If disease of thehe laeid,or thie feet, or tile lungs, liver, &n
each require a peculiar kind of medicine to hCeilthemn, won
not those parts each require a particular kind ofrfood folr tlh
nourishment. But as we know th. t good, wholesome fo-
nourishes all parts of the system, alike, it is manifest liher
lore, that a good and proper vegetable medicine will, by puin
fying th, e blood, search out and remove disease hrom eve
part of the body.
According to the Naturalnor Indian theory, all our cor
plaints owe their origin to one cause, viz: hle shutting tp
those outlets, (tlie Skin, Kidneys and Bowels) through whin
nature lihas intended I, that all corrupt and useless manner shou
be carried from thie body .WVhen these become closed, it
like the shutting nup of a twa e-course; either the accumulated
waters find a new outlet, or the count y becomes inme ndatle
just so with the human body; if tile ualural drains becon
closed, tie Iahumor's accumulatnne in thie syVSLem, and eit her fit
venl. in tIe form of various diiseases, such as Fern rs, Rihnl un
tism, Cutaneous eruptions, (Gout, &c., or Apophlexy, ni
Death ends tihe scene The only sensible mehliod, lthe'refori
of preventing and curing disease, is to keep the body contim
ally purged of'l llire ns;mess.nnd corruptll hnnnor; and for tIl
purpose no medicine will be found so effectual, as thie Indil
Purgative, because, it is tile only one whose power extends I
the opening ofallthie natural drains ofhe body. Whilst ui
Ie'er the uifnuenre ofl hls singular medicine, tlie body will 1
kept inn a gentle but effectuUl perspiration; i proper disechlr
of urine will be experienced; tlhe sunimch and howels will I
thoronlghly cleansed; and the blood will be stimulated to pur
ry itself.
One very common objection urged by some who but parlin
ly understand the m prit'cipl ol'ecurin-n disease ly purgaiion,
iromunlgted by the nrilI American ( ... of HI-lealth,
that nalihough reiterated purging will coree disease; yet, tin;
thie rcieated. 'p...-.';u r n organs will injure or i desltr
their' tltle. I'r.., n .. i ,., objections, appear to finn'gn
lhat purging is as natural to the bowels, as walking is to mi
feet or laborto to e hands; and like every onlier function mn
be.duly exercised in order o relaini heir energies.
Wlalt nitin in his senses would think ,o1 depriving lis ,lhi
dren of exercise inn order 1liat thely miglt ie strengthened 1I
inactivity An. yet this bhsurdiity is no greater, than the in
faluation of i husr wrin imn;iine I]]h bowels can l, ie injured I-
perl minmI'ig l 'ir' n lunlal l'uincions; or fl ti disease 'an I
cured by any olnhumedicine lthai such as will remove tlI
cause from the bnody.
Nalurne. is onstanltly .imi.: s exannples of hlle salninlr e
rects of purging. hWe lr i-c1r'everinghly employed, n(olt n
ly in carrying off lle resieumn ol'lhc aaltur'al Iorod, i)v ithe daily

penrfett s ifaly, nn d no dIs", hwnsever sinall,ilu will afford snn
relief; anJ noi quantity however large, (if it be such as is r
quired no open tlee bowels) can possibly injure.
Assisting nature shnold be our chief study, and for this ipu
pose, thle Indian Purgative will be iund ithe most effieeto
medicine ever offered to (lie public. Its power being alwan

amount of assistance she requires, to enable her to cure evel
variety of disease. It being a vegetable preparntion,and arl
ing in harmony with our constitution, it is always the rigl
intedicine to he adininistered. A single dose swill in'inmost casi
iffotrd relief, and, if persevered with, will always effect a cInrl,
In using thle Indian Purgative, (or dlunnil Vegetable Pills
ao care is necessary, except in takling such as shall opera
freely upon the buoiels. If this effect is osbained, every el n
mnclion will Ibe duly performed. The skin and kidneys wi
each he stimulated to discharge their portion ofimpurities; an
he energy, imparted by this extraordinary medicine to th
lood(, will enable that fluid to disengage and deposile its inn
rure particles into the towels; from whn lice they will be car
-ied off by lihe regular action oi "those organs.
One great advantage, possessed by the Indian Pills ove
very other medicine is, thlia, as they cure disease upon n tu
nal principles and, suit ull ieomlnimsl, they are always thI
iglt medicim ne obe administered,and, consequently, can nev
r lie lnkenly improperly: therefore, no itlme shoulIlfbe lost i
listening to tcontrandictomv advice, tlh- only inquiry slholdI he
s the person sclk ? ifso, hlie sooner a few'domses of the andiai
Pills are administered, thie sooner will the patient be resnorei
o health and uselulness.
