B RANDRETI'S PILLS by cleansing
the Blood from all impurities, gives
power to every organ to perform its functions
healthily ; no matter whether externally or in
ternally situated. Nature has formed the bow
els for the evacuation of all unhoa.lthy humors
of the blood, and if man would use but com
mon sense, lie would take care that they per.
formed this office faithfully. If the bowels are
out of order, if too slow, or too fast, a few do
sesof BRANDRETH'S PILLS willbring
them to order. Ask the mian who was dying
from constipated bowel. what cured him; ie
tellsyou Brandreih's Pills. Ask him who has
had the dysentary for six months. and every
remedy had fliled; he tells you. Brandreth's
Pills cured him iA week. So with other dis
cases Twelve Brahdreth's Pills rubbed down
in half pint of molasses. cured a lttle boy of
an ulcer of the face which was rapidly spreading
to his eyes, and which a dozen coctors had tried
to cure, but could not; the pocar parents would
have given half they were worth to have had it
cured, but every thing they tried did no good,
until they uave .t a tea spoonful (of molasses ev
ery day. in half a pint of which they had rubbed
down twelve Brandreth's Pills; before the
wholeof the molasses was taken the ilcer was
cured. And yet some foolish people call Bran.
dreth's Pills a quack medicine. - It would ie
well if there were a few wore such quack rmed.

persons curcd as Dr. Brandreth can? Can
they point out to you pedple who had been
helpless for years from Epilepsy and St. Vitus'
Dance, who have been cured by their rerne
dies? af they cannot, Dr. Brandreth can.
Can they point out to you a person who for
twenty years had rever had a stool without
having used medicine, or mneelanical nenirs,
and whom the Brundredh's Pills cured in a
month, and gave him as healthy evacuations
as he had when ie was a child ?

We observe, in a number of our ex

on the course of G n. Gaines in imaking a
requisi'ion on Gov. Moulton, of Louisiana,
t.ostly condetnnatory. as having been
done without authority. and in many cases
mixed up with political matters, and re
flertions on the Adminiistration. We re
gret to see the press itiu-i stoop to pander
tie the appetites of disappointed politicians,
or. indeed, allude ii any way to internal
politics. in a matter wiere our own and a
treign nation are at issue. "Our coun

should pe the motto of every patriot, and
we have little more confidence in the man
who would wield a pen to draw. down ob

LATER FROM TEXAS.
NEW ,0a1LANs, Aug. 27,
By the arrival yesterday morning of
the steamer U~dine,' Capi.. Grice, from
Corpus Christi, Via Aransas Bay- and
Galveston, we. have received our files of
papers to. Saturday last, 23d instant.
The. Unditic left Corpus -Christi on the
.18th. . All was.quiet at the..U S. 'En
campment. General Taylor had.- sue
ceeded in removing all the troops belong
ing to 'be 3d and 4th Regiments of U. 4.
Inflantry, and established his Head Quar
ters at Corpus Christi. Good health pre
vailed in the Camp.
T'e Undine left Aransas Baj ou .the
2-lt inst. .The schr. Resell.., Shipman,
was to leave in a few day ;: the. schr.
Floridian, Arnel, with coal, .&c. for the
U. . troops, had just arrived. Steamer
Monmouth was repairing.-, Schr.. Sdal
low, which had been wrecked on the Bar,
had been stripped of her masts, sails, rig
ging. &c. Some of; her cargo was saved.
. The steatner .'Kim, at Galvestonwas
to leave at 3. o'clock nn the 28d inst.
.The, Galveston -ews .states ihat tb.
Mexican arqpy at Matamoros is said to be
8.000.strong, and are engagediafortifyitg
that city.. Per contra the Civilian do
clares that from the best information, the
number of troups.at Matamoros does not
exceed 1,500-that they are badly- sup
ported. and not more efficient than Mex
ican soldiers usually are.
The accounts from the.Convention are
meagre and unsatisfactory.. 'Nothing fur
ther had been done relative to the project:.
of attempii'nl to. establish a Provincial
Government and annullini the- present
Consttution, 'prior to he completion of
the State. Tbe-plan had been strongly.
opposed by Messrs:..- ienderson an' Van;
Zaudt, and otner leadiig members, and
discountenanced by Major Donelsou.
The following resolutinnsi introduced by
Gov. Ruemuels, were adopted by the Con
vention on lio-29th ult.
AResolved, .Tbat.th.Committee on the
*Gpral i Forniinrai rif thn naign
beinstructed to-enquire-into the expddi-.
ency and propriety of irreorporating ip the
Coustitntion, the liillowing provisions:
.1st. The Legislature shill have' no.
power to pass laws for the emancipation
of slaves, . without .the consent of their.
owners, or without jiaying their owners
previous to such emancipation, a full e
quivalent for the slaves so emancipated.
They shall have no power to prevent im
migrants to this State from- ringing with
them such. persons a? are deemed slaves
by thu laws of any one of the United
States, so long as any person of the same
age and descriptiou shall be continued in
slavery by the laws of this State; provi
ded that such person or slave be the bona
fidi property. of. such immigrants; and
yrovided also, that laws may he passed to:
prohibit the introduction into this State of
slaves who have commiled high crimes
in other States or Territories. They shall
have full power to oblige the owners of
slaves.ita treat them with humanity, to
pto.vide lbr them.necessary lbod andcloth
iug to abstain froni all crucltias to them;.
and in case of their neglect or refusal to
comply with the. requisitions of such laws,.
to provide by. laW, for the sale of such
slave or slaves. for tthe benefit of the own
er or owners... . .
.2d.. 1n the prosecution of slaves for.
crimes oIf higlmer grade than petit larceny,
the Legislature sh~all have no power to de
prive thetm of tan impartial trial by a petit
3d, Any person who shall maliciously;
dismeumabe? or deprive a slave of life, shall.
suffer such punishment as' wouli be .iu
flicted in case, the like offence 'has been.
committed on a free wyhite person, and on
the like piroof, except in case of insurrec
tion of such slave."
One of the provisions Vassed by the
Convention prohibits the creation, renewi
al or extension of any corporate body
with banking or discounting power. An
other section prohibits the Legislature
from contracting dbt above 8100,000,
except in case of wvar, or to repel .inva
stn or ineurreetion.--ee.
Still nothing, or next to nothing, of
those 10,000 Mexicans. We w'ait imnpa
tietn'ly for their appearance.. ii is evident
that there is somne kitnd of military dloings
on the other side of the.Rio Grande1 but
as far as wve aro.authentically informed,
it part akes much .more of the character of
defence than attack. In 'the last New
