VANCE, the people's candidate for Governor
of Ohio. He is the representative of the true
Democracy of the state. A pioneer, a farmer,
raised by the good qualities of his head and
heart to be a legislator and a governor. Three
cheers for Old Joe Vance, the ox-driver.
Next comes THOMAS EWING. You all
know his history. It is in the mouth and en
graven upon the heart, I hope, of every young
man in the Sta'.e. First, in every thing he un
dortook,whelhcr as wood-chopper, salt-boiler,
lawyer, or as member of the most learned and
- august body in the world. He undertook noth

for Tom Etcing, the salt-boiler.
Third on the list stands PATRICK G.
GOODE, in every sense of the word, a labor
ing man and a true one. As a lawyer stand,

a consistent and efficient support to those in

- to advance our interests. He understands them
well. Another round for John Hollistert the
pioneer of the back-woods.

He, who hath observed the rapid growth of
the numberless villages that have sprung up
along the line of the Erie canal, since the com
pletion, cannot but have in 'his mind the ele
ments of the picture which will be presented
.upon the Wabash and Erie canal, when a few
more years shall have rolled over our heads.
Here the same elements exist, and the process
of developemcnt is rapidly going on. An army
is stealing with noiseless step into the strong
holds of the forests, and the rain does not fall
foBter than they are laying their time-honored
heads in the duet. The scanty clearing of the 1st
year enlarges at the second, and in a few years
a fine farm yields its large surplus of food,
. which, when the canal is completed, will find
ks way to tho nearest village, there to be sold
. or exchanged with the merchant for those pro
. ducts of other regions, which minister to the
necessities, or add to the comforts of the tillers
of the soil. 1 From different points along this
canal, roads will radiate, and at these points,
tho merchant, the forwarder, the produce deal
er and the mechanic will fix their places of re
sidencc.and a village will grow up around them,
keeping pace with the growth of the country
upon which it depends, and affording a certain
index of its growth and prosperity. , - , .
' Providence and Gilead are situated, the for
mer upon the North,' and the latter upon the
.South side of the Maumee, at the head of the
rapids. ; It is supposed that there will be an
immense water power available at both these
places, whenever proper improvements shall
be made.' Something has already been done
towards such improvement. -!. The state have
it in contemplation to erect a dam across the
Maumee here, for the purpose of supplying the
canal. . '. . V " " v ' ' '
These t wo places have their stores, taverns
end mechanics, and are doing a thriving busi
ness with the country in their vicinity. They
are severally the centers of several important
.roads, leading in various . directions through
- some of the finest tracts of land in the Btate.
It is here that the navigation of the tipper
Maumee terminates, and goods are shipped
from hence to Defiance, and Wayne, and the
northern part of Ohio, and Indiana by keel
boats and pirogues, in great quantities. The
navigation of the-river is usually carried on
from its opeiiinj in the spring, till about the
r ' lie of July, and from the first of Septem-;
I't until wmti-r. -J7:'.
How many times has the tide of human life
rolled broad, and high over this apparently
new and virgin' country ! How many times has
it again rolled back, and left vanquished Na
ture to usurp hor old dominion and obliterate
almost evey trace of humanity from the soil!
How difficult it is for even fancy to fill the vast
blank whose outlines are) shadowed forth to us
in the thousands of relics of people, of nations
who with their memories are now sleeping to
gether in the dust. . The fair-haired pigmy
whose embalmed remains, with their sepulchral
accompaniments display a high state of im
provoment in the arts; the burly giant, whose
prodigious limbs, and barbarous arms give evi
dence of a predominance of brutish force, are
gone, and the little that is left can servo to
awaken, rather than to gratify curiosity. And
the huge Mastodon ha who "bounded over
the Wabash, the Illinois, and finally over the
great lakes,"is as a thingthat never was,though
his iron bones still tell where he lived and died.
Even now, the last drops of a fallen race are
fast flying away, and the roaring of a new tide
is in our ears, before whom every thing of the
past will be as nothing in comparison with the
almighty present and future of civilization.
And when shall these loo pass and be forgot

, Health of this Couktry. Most of the
tales in circulation respecting the sickness and
loss of life in this country during the present
season are entirely talse. Jn I'errysburg, the
number of adult persons who have died since
the first of January last, is two. In this place
the mortality has been greater, but it is still
small among our regular settled population.
Among the foreigners who have labored on the
canal, the imprudent and dissipated, there have
been a number of deaths. But counting the
whole number at the towns at the foot of the
rapids, we may safely challenge any. country
to show so little loss of life in the same num
ber of people, during the same length of

tervillo nominated Parley Carl in to represent
this district in tho lower house of the Legisla

lately manifested a disposition to fly the track.
The nomination did not suit our democratic
fellow citizens at Toledo, who, it is said left the
convention with a prodigious flea in their ears.
It is said that a certain Mr. Myers of that
place wanted the nomination badly, and that
he was not the only one who would have been
happy in the honor of a fair prospect of being
thrashed like a sack in October.' Right, Gen
tlemen! Brief honors are better than none.
Well, Messrs. Whigs, Parley Carliu is an
old townsman of ours, and in many respect a
clever man, and as such, we may and should
wish him well. But if he gets a single Whig
vote from this township at the next election,
we hope the man who gives it will live to be
sorry for it. - So, Mr. Carlin, our respects to
you, but we don't like your principles that's

Billious Fevers, The following hints for
obviating and preventing Billious Fevers are
from the pen of the celebrated Doctor Rush,
and are worthy of the attentive consideration of
every person in this section of the country. We
commend them to our readers for a careful pe
rusal, assuring them that they were written by
a man who recommended nothing without a
reason.. 7 : , . .. ... , i , ' '.
Since the above was in type we have receiv
ed the following from a correspondent:
Since Dr. Rush wrote, the knowledge of bil.-
lious fevers has greatly advanced, but there is
nothing contained in the following to which in
telligent Physicians of the present time will not
subscribe. It has long been a settled point that
the malaria or vegetable poison, which, taken
into the human system, occasions billious dis
orders alwayi connects iltelf with moiiture in
some shape, mostly in dews and fogs, but also
in rain made of new country evaporation. It is
also settled that the human system during
ileep is more liable to be acted on by this poi
son than when awake. ' Hence the vital impor
tance of keeping the dewt and fogs from the
room in which toe tlcep. To prevent the dews
from entering sleeping rooms, the windowsand
all communication with the external air must be
closed about half an hour before sun down, and
in rooms containing the sick a small fire should
be built about the same time.. Set down that
doctor as ignorant of the nature of billioua fe
vers who allows air charged with moisture to
enter the sleeping apartments of his patients.
situations, to prefer woolen and cotton to lin
en clothes in the summer and autumnal months.
The most sickly parts of the island of Jamaica
bave been rendered more healthy, since the inhabitants-
have (adopted the ure of woolen and
cotton garments instead of linen.
During the late war, I knew many officers
both in the British and American armies
who escaped fevers in the most sickly places,
by wearing woolen shirts, or waistcoats con
stantly next to their skins. I have heard the
present ' diminution of the human body in
strength and size, oompared with its ancient
vigor and form, ascribed in part to the introduc
tion of linen garments. . I am not disposed to
controvert this opinion, but I am sure of the
efficacy of woolen clothes jn wet and cold cli
mates in preventing fevers of all kinds. ..The
Parliament of Great Britain compels every bo
dy that dies within the island to be buried in a
woolen shirt or winding sheet. The law would
be much wiser if.it compelled every body to
wear woolen garments next to their skins du
ring life, and linen after death. ,-. . -.
3. The diet in the sickly months should be
cenerous, Wine and beer should be drinks of
this season, instead of spirits and water. I do
not think that fruits and vegetables of any kind
produce fevers, but as the season of the year
producer 1 mguorand weakness,a larger quanti
ty of animal food than usual, is best calculated
to oppose them.' Salted meat for this season
is preferable to fresh meat, Food of all kinds
eaten during the sickly months should be well
seasoned' ' - ";;y - '".-4 ''V''.? 1
4. The evening air should be avoided as
much as possible. There are at present few
places in Pennsylvania where it is safo to sleep,
or even sit, after the going down of the sun, in
the sickly months, with the windows open.
The morning air before the Bun rises, should
not be breathed, until the body has been fortifi
ed with a little solid aliment, or a draught of
bitters. . These bitters should be made of cen
taury, wormwood, camomilo,. or Jho hark of
the willow or dogwood trees, infused in wa
ter. Hitters made with spirits, or even wine,
cannot be taken in a sufficient quantity to do
service, without producing intoxication, or the
deadly habit of loving and drinking spirituous
5. Tod much cannot be said in favor of clean
liness, as a means of. preventing fevers. The
body ' should be bathed or washed fiequent
ly. It has been proved that iu the highlands of
Jamaica, adding salt to water renders it more
powerful in preventing diseases when applied
to the body. Equal pains should be taken to
promote cleanliness in every species of appa
rel. Olful matters, especially those which are
of a vegetable nature, should be removed from
the neighborhood of a dwelling-house. : The
dung or domestic animals during its progress
towards manure may be excepted from this di
rection. Naturc,which made man and these an
imals equally ' necessary to bach other's subsis
tence, has kindly prevented any inconvenience
from their living together. On the contrary,
to repay the husbandman for affording a shelter
to these usclul and helpless animals, nature has
done more. 8he has endowed their dung with
a power of destroying the effects ot marsh ex
halations, and of preventing fevers. The mis
erable cottagers in Europe who live under the
same roof.Jtin some instances in the same room
with their cattle, are always healthy. In fhil-
adeiphia, fevers are less known in the neigh
borhood of livery stables, than in any other
part of the city. I could mention a family that
has lived near thirty years near a livery stable
in a ' sickly part ot the city, that has never
known a fever but from, the measles or small
pox. ' I : .
7 1 come now to suggest a few hints for obvi
ating and preventing fevers, and' for ren
dering our country again healthy. , For this
purpose I beg leave to recommend in the first
place, the planting of trees around all our mill
ponds, (besides cleaning them occasionally) in
order to prevent the diseases that have been
iustlv ascribed to them. Let the trees be
planted -n the greatest number, and closest to.
get her, to leeward of the ordinary current of
the summer and autumnal winds. I have
known several instances of families being pre
served from fevers by an accidental copse of
wood standing between a null-pond and a dwel
ling-house, and that in cases too where the
house derived no advantairo from an hieh sit
uation. The trees around, or near a mill-pond,
act DerliaDsin a small decree mechanically.
JJy sheltering the pond from the action or the
sun, they lessen exhalation, as well as obstruct
the passage of the vapours that are raised to
the adjacent "parts. But they act ' likewise
chemically, ' It has been demonstrated that
trees absorb unhealthy a!r, and discharge it in
a highly purified state in the form of what is
now called deflogisticated' air. The willow
tree, according to Mr. Invenhousz, ' has been
found to purify air the most rapidly of any tree
that he Subjected to his experiments. ' The ra
pidity of its growth, its early verdure and the
late fall of its leaf, all seem to mark it likewise
as a tree highly proper fortius purpose.' "
A second method of preventing fevers, is to
let the cultivation always keep pace with the
clearing of our lands. ' Nature has in this influ
ence connected our duty; interest, and health
together."' Let every spot covered with mois
ture from which the wood has been cut, be care
fully drained, and afterwards ploughed and sow
ed with grass seed ; let weeds of ail kinds be de
stroyed, and let the waters be so directed as to
prevent their stagnating in any part of their
course.' 7' ; " ','' 77"'" " '" '.' ! ''J
These are tho tw o principal means of extir
pating intermitting and billious fevers from our
country! but as these -,ieans - are slow in
their operation, I shall subjoin a few direc
tions for preventing fevers tQl the above reme
dies can take effect.- f. -n. noiii .

pretend to determine: but .it is certain, that
hre or the smoke or heat, which issue from it,
destroy the ectects of marsh - miasmata upon
the human body; hence we find - cities more
healthy than country places, and the centre of
cities more healthy than their suburbs, in the
sickly months. ' To derive the utmost possible
benefit trom this method ot preventing sick
ness, I would advise large fires to be made ev
ery evening, of brash, between the spots from
whence the exhalations are derived,' and the
dwelling-house, and as near to the latter as is
safe, and -'not - disagreeable' This practice
should be continued iill the appearance of two
