Tie Cause of Bilious ComUp
laints and a Mode of Cure.
Well regilaited and proportionate quani
i ' ty ofbile upon the stoiach. is always rc
quisite for the promotion of sound health-it
stiulares digestion, and keeps the intestinal
canal free Iroms all ohbtructions. Onl the inferi
or surfire oflthe liver is a peculiar bladder. in
which the bile is first preserved, being barnied
by the liver from the blood. Thence it passes I
into the stomach arid intestines, atd regulates
the indigestion. Thus we see when ther e is a
deficiency of bile, the body is constantly costive.
On the o:her hand, an overaliuntdance of hile
causes frequent nausea in the stoitich; and of
ten promotes very severe attacks of disease,
which cometimes end in death.
Fevers are always preceded by symptoms
of a disordered stonach: as are ilso scrofuilous
disorders, and all sympathetic functional. or
gatnic orfebrile diseases. From the saime cause,
the natural and healthy action of the heart, and
the whole vascular system is iimpaired and redn
ced below its natural standard as exhibited in
palpitations, langnid pulse. torpor of the limbs,
syncope. and even death itself, in consequetice
of an overabundance of a peculiaroffensive sub.
stance to the di, estive organs.
Theapproach of bilious diserases is at all timnes I
atrended by decided symptons of' at. existing I
diseased state of the stonach and bowels; i. e.
with i hose which are known to pooiit out their
contents to be of a morbid irritating iature; but
whenever the alineitary canal happens to be
loaded with irritating matter, soime deraige
ment of healthy operation either of tie general
systei, or ofsone particular organ of the body
is tie certain result. anid when this state hap
eirs to be unitei with any other svymptomrs of
disease, its effects are always thereby nruch ag
gravated. The progrrss of organic'obstructionir
is often so rapid as scarcely tr admit oftimne for
the application ofsuch aid as is to be offered by j
art, yet. in general. the premonitory symptons
of gastric load are perceptibli- Ibr a day or two r
previous to the feverish paroxista period. when
the most elicacious assistance may be given, by il
unloading the stomach and alimentary canal f
Dflits irritating contents, and thus reducing the a
stusceptibility' of' disease.
MOFFATrS LIFE MEDICINES, shotild s

out aiongI the Chcrokees. iu Arkansas.
Tihe dispute arose ott of an unwillingncss
on the part of Ross and others to snbtuit
to the terms of the Treaty by which they
had ceded to the United States, the territo
ry formerly occupiedby them. Upon this
(larrel the parties arose, one headed -by
Kipe-s, and the other by Ridge. On ihe
30th lay of June. a National Council was
lel. which conelnded by the secession of
the R1id. e party, who were highly incen
sod at the rejection of a law proposed by
hem. The Ross party, consequently re
siohveil todeestroy the chiefs oh'the opposing
tGw(tiont, nend a ppointed a committee of for
!e imilividuals for executing the resolve on
enchi of' these chiefs. This bloody conspi
racy succeeded. and onesingle chief alone
escaped. He rallied the Ridge ptarty, and
on the 28th it, attacked the Ross party
I a rte battle which ensued, from 40 to 70
