The "Democrat" takes us to task for our
remarks of last week, on the subject of the
tariff, &c Speaking of the tariffs of 1842
ond 1846, he soys "Tobacco, we bolicvc,
is the only article on which the prices have
lowered sinco tho repeal of that odious
tariff, and the Boon's Lick Times will not
pretend to say that the reduction of the
tariff had any effect in producing a fall in
the price of that article. On nearly every
other article, the production of tho farmer
and planter, the prices have gone up 20, 40.
60, and as high as 100 per cent." We al
luded to no particular objects, or the price
of any particular commodity: our remarks
wero general, and in making them, we did
not propose to sustain our position by
showing the evil or good effects tho repeal
of tho one or the establishment of the
other might or might not exercise upon
any particular object. But as the "Demo
crat" has given the banter, wo think we
can very readily muko it see the error of
its way. We will admit, then, that the re
duction of tho tariff had no effect upon thr
price of tobacco. Our homo market will
not consume tho amount produced, and
there is no demand in the foreign market,
it being glutted, and foreign funds find a
better investment in breadstuff?, for which
there is great demand, consequent upon the
failure of the grain crops of Europe, the
disease of tho polatoc, &c.
Now if tho "Democrat" enn demonstrate
that the blight of the potato crops of Ire
land and Scotland, and the short harvests
of grain throughout Europe, wero produced
by tho establishment of the tariff of 18-10.
then we will admit that the repeal of the
tariff of 1842, caused an advance in the
price of the products of tho planters of
this country, excepting tobacco, of "20, 40,
50 and 100 per cent." If the crops of Eu
rope had been fui! ones last year, the pro
ducts of our planters, with a few excep
tions, would range in prices with tobacco.
Tho tariff of 1810, has no moro bearing
upon the present prices of bread stuff-5 in
this country, than it has upon the weather.
Providence visits one nation with a calami
ty, and another profits by it, by having a
surplus of the necessaries of life which
have fallen short in the afflicted country.
Is it not wrong, nay, impious, to attempt
to make our citizens believe that the pre
sent prices of tho products of our soil, are
the legitimate results of a civil law?
If the harvests of Europe, tho current
year, should be abundant, a different state
rof affairs will exist next year; but if they
fhduld again be short, prices will be higher,
j and in that event, we doubt not, as now,
there will be those who will attribute it to
the repeal of the tariff of 1842 1
Borrowers. We hear great complaints
of borrower of newspapers. What, says
the honest subscriber, who pays regularly
for his paper, are there those who borrow
a newspaper, when it can be had for the
trifle of two dollars per year? Yes, good
friend, there arc such. Men, who leave
their homes and business', and go to stores,
shops, and offices, and disturb their neigh
bors, by borrowing their papers, which
they pay for, to get the privilege of reading.
Ohio Wheat. Two-thirds of the crop
of Wheat in Ohio is stated to be in the
hands of the farmers. There is alone on
the table lands, through which tho Western
Railroad will pass, at least two millions of
bushels which havo yet to go to market.
The Washington Union of the 20th, ex
presses the opinion, founded on the last
news from Mexico, that the President can
conclude a satisfactory treaty with that
country, if the three million bill shall be
More Money. It is now stated that the
Secretary will need a further loan of ten
millions, as no estimate was made in the
former loan for the expense, bounty, &v..,
of the ten regiments to be raised under
the late bill.
Colonization. The told receipts of
tho American Colonization Society during

The London correspondence of the Bos
ton Traveller says thcro is some prospect
that tho present enormous duty upon to
bacco imported into England will be con
siderably reduced. Our Minister to that
court has. it is said, already brought this
subject before some influential members
of Parliament, and has urged the import
ance of a great reduction in the duties.

COLtS, COI.-OIIS, ASTHMA, A.MJ CONSUMPTION!
The most cr.i.KHRATr.u and iNrALum.E remedy
for Colds. Coughs, Asthma, and every form of pcl
MnjtARY cNsusirnoN, is the Hungarian balsam
or life, discovered by that eminent Medical Chem
ist, Dr. Buchan of London. England, and exten
sively known as the Great English Remedy.'
It has hcen tested fur upwards of seven years
in Great Britain and on the Continent of Europe,
whern it is universally considered the great and
only remedy for this awful malady, and is now
introduced into tho United Slates under the im
mediate superintendence of the inventor. Within
three years it has been distributed from Maine to
Florida, and from Canada to Wisconsin, and its
effects are every where alike
ASTONISHING AND TRIUMPHANT!
As a preventive medicine, ond an antidote
."gainst tho Consumptive tendencies of tho cli
mate, it is invaluable. Asa remedy for severe
and obstinate Coughs, Inflammation of tho Lungs,
Croup, Slc, it is unrivalled. But the American
Agent is socenSdent of the merit of this great
Remedy, in the worst forms of Consumption, thut
ho prefers to have it used by tho
rnthorthan by persons aiilicted with soma simple
nnd less dangerous disorder of ll.c Throat am!

Which are the last clf;cts of that awful scourge,
and -v!iich are erroneously supposed to he bevund
tho reach of medical aid. The Agent or Proprie
tors of n'.li'jr medie'ines, dare not claim for their
preparaiions a power like this. They know thu in
no case have such effects been produced. Tho
grand object and purpose of the common 'remedies'
is simply to give rki.ief not to li;p.e. This i
easily done by any intelligent Physician or Dreg-
gist but while uallymg with tnoo delusive com
rou.Nljs, the patient riinidlv declines, and every
day places him farther and farther

compound, the great uml only rjinedv which med

treatment of ibis hitherto unconquered malady.
It is, in 1'uct, tho
EF.ST BEMKnr I" TitS WOULD!
And no person, atllicted with this dread nattoal
disease, will be just to himself and his friends,
if he go down to the grave without testing its
virtues. A single hott'e, in most eases, will pro
duce a favorable cliangi! in the condition of ant

wo admit beyond its power to cure.
Tho American Ag;nt of tho Great English
Remedy, having full confidence in its extraordi
nary eiricnev in tho wurt forms of Pulmonary
disease, boldly solicits for treatment, not the
common nnd ordinary cases of simple Colds or
Inflammation, but what ara considered the most
Arr.vLUNQ c.tsns of
CONFIRMED AND ISCUKAfiLE TUBCr.Ctr.0fS DTsE.tsc!
If ihero is a remedy in the world, it is lo be
found in Dh. Blciian's Huvoauian Balsam. It
has cured cases supposed to be past all hope. It
has raised invalids, as it were, from tho very
grave. It has cured after all oilier systems, med
icines, nnd methods of treatment have failed. It
is found to ho superior to all the effects of Medi
cated Baths. Inhalation, change of climile, or any
of the thousand experiments that wealth and inge
nuity have ever attur.iptcd. It stands alono and un
rivalled, OS tho GREATEST AND HEST or ALL REM
EDIES. The obstailes which even the well-founded in
credulity of mankind has opposed to the success
of the Hungarian Eulsam, are now fast disappear
ing, as its triumphs become more widely spread
over tho land; and it is rapidly reaching the envia
