" . . William Sawyer. People of Northern
' OWo you are called upon to give your vote
Tor William Sawyer as a candidate for your re
presentative in the councils of the nation. A
corrupt press and a gratuitous ciiculation of
falsehoods are ringing his praises in your ears,
Efforts of the strongest kind are making to con
, vince you of his worth. Slanders the most
. black and wicked, are thrown out against his
opponent. Every effort, from the specious ar
gutnent of the apparently candid to the most
vile blackguardism of the professed slanderer
is mad use of to operate upon your feelings,
to arouse your passions, and sway your better
judgments. You are told to vote fjr William
Sawyer, or you are not Democrats, as if the
' test of Democracy resides in the vote you may
-ghre for mad with whose principles you are
unacquainted. Vote for William Sawyer, and
why 1 Because he is a destructive? because
lit belongs to a party that has brought ruin
and distress upon the country? because he up
holds and promises, if elected, to assist in car
rying out the designs of that party? because he
has, with one -solitary exception, opposed le
gislative action upon every thing intended1 for
the benefit of this section of the country ? Are
these the reasons why you will vote for Wil
" liam Sawyer? ; Will you kiss the rod that chas
tened you unjustly, and like base hounds, love
your master the more, the more you are bea
ten. Is there a drop of good old American
blood the blood of the Revolution, that
'will not Tise and crimson the cheek in very
shame at such a degradation.
And what has Willam Sawyer done? Aye,
what foil he done? Bring forth your sliong
reasons for his support and let. them be can
vassed and weighed, that justice may take
place. He votodYor the extension of the Mi
ami canal north of Dayton. That is to say.
. he voted to carry one of the great public works
ofQhio, through his own county, perchance
through his own township, to the manifest ad
vantage of his own neighbors and himself.
Wonderful man! Self-denying statesman cer
tainly, to vote to put money in his own pocket
and to add to the value of his own land. And
it is this this solitary act this one great and
glorious deed that gives him his claim upon
vour suffrages, fellow citizens..- This is all
that his friend can say for him that he voted
for the extension of the Miami canal, north of
Dayton. " . '' .
. v And here the record of hi's deeds for our ben
efit stops. Did he vote for the speedy com
mencement of the Wabash and Erie canal? Be
it remembered that he did not. He opposed
it, voted against it, and if he could have pre-
vailed this great andh'oi o able work'wculd not
at this day have -been commenced. No; to
use his own words, this coun'ry that he now
seeks to represent, was " a wilderness, inhabi
ted by bears and wolves." Away with such a
bog-bear; away with such a wolf in cheeps clo
thing; away with such a pretended friend,
whose tender mercies are upon his own pock-
eta, and who has no bowels of compassion be
yond the narrow circle of his own interests.
But this is not all. ; When the people of this
country, - suffering beyond endurance by the
dreadful state of the Black Swamp Road, and
despairing of Legislative assistance to render
it passable, petitioned merely for an act of in
corporation under which they might go to
work and improve .it at their own expense,
William Sawyer " voted against granting the
prayer of the petition Yes; he opposed their
laying out their own money upon the worst
road in the state,, when there, was no other
means under heaven that could be resorted to,
to improve it. Such is William Sawyer, such
his democracy, such his love for the people. '
. Search the Legislative records of the two
years of his occupancy of a seat in the Senate.
They are full of such cases. It is useless to
enumerate them; we have told enough.:
'' But there is another of the deeds of this man
that we must notice .before we close.,:', This
William Sawyer is the man-who introduced
into the Legislature a memorial praying that
Avery the man who stands convicted of mur
der by the opinion of the people of the United
States might be elected chaplain of the Ohio
Penitentiary. And this memorial he suppor
ted by a speech in which he lavished his wit in
& miserable-burlesque and ridicule at the exer
ciew and ordinances of religion, It was through
Itjs influence and exertions too, that the mise
rable inmates of that pUce of punishment we're
deprived, for one year of the blessings' of reli
gious instruction and advice. Ohio,. then dis
graced herself in the eyes of the whole ; world.
She refused to the poor criminal upon whose
.head the vengeance ofthe law had fallen, those
means of assistance and encouragement in his
cJearors to reform which 'were especially in
view at the establishment of our penitentiary

the first, but there is no saying who may follow
thee in the suspension J Quaint andmirth-mo-ving

Many is the tirao when a warm bubbling-up, a
hot-spring cachination has met our wilting
ears, accompanied with the declaration 'Good

pocket no milky corn for thy "Dolly," and
no pellets of Indian meal for" Ruffle," and her
downy brood? And hast thou said to thy sub

I give thee all, I can no more and turned
away in the sickness and sorrow of thy heart,
because thou hadst no more to give, and the
next moment drawn thyBelfup with a glow of
indignation upon thy cheek because thou hadst
given so much and received so little? Go to!
Go to! If thou hast not seen all this, turn back
to thy trade and learn it over again. : Learn

years while this country has grown in popula

Franklins, our Washingtons have always been
in favor of a credit and paper currency, - All at
once, however, in the midst of the greatest
prosperity Thomas H.' Benton and Martin
Van Buren, wiser in their own estimation than
Franklin and Washington, find out that we
ought to have a hard currency and thereupon
make war .upon the credit institutions ofthe

Anothbr War in Embryo. The St. Louis
Gazette ofthe 15th ultimo, contains the fol
lowing -curious article furnished by a corres
pondent of that paper: ";'.'
From a correspondent of the Gazette we
obtain thefollowing information with regard to
the Mormons, who are settled in the interior
" I find a rumor of apprehended disturbances
with the Mormons. They, as you know, oc
cupy Caldwell county exclusively. It seems
that one of their number was on the day of
election, in Davies's county, and at the polls
fot embroiled in a difficulty, that ended in his
eath. It is said that some of the' Mormons
have been maltreated by their own body, and
have spread their complaints into neighboring
counties.' ' ' ' '" '
"It is said, also, that it is difficult to collect
debts among them; and that the officers have
been put in duress who have endeavored to
make collections. It is said, also, that some
persons, who have come in amongthem, have
been forced to sign obligations in regard to the
purchase of lands, tho nature of which, how
ever, if the attempt ever has been made, I
have not learned. '
"Whether all or any of those causes have
led to the difficulties which are apprehended, I
cannot pretend to say. There is no doubt, at
any rate, that some alarm and expectation of
'collision prevails in adjoining counties. Joe
Smith, it is said, brags of his forces setting
them at 1,200 able-bodied men. They polled
only SOS; but no doubt large additions have
been made to their number within a year, who
or course are not yet qualified voters, i
"One fact is, that Joe had taken himself a
young girl to wife, and promised his followers
that of his lineage there should be a son, who
should be to them prophet, priest and king.
Unluckily, however, the priest and king turned
out to be a female. But I suppose the faithful
will receive her as pythoness and queen, and
nursing mother in the church.
The Mormons are in expectation of fresh
recruits from the East and I observe in the
newspapers, that 500 are on their way to the
land of Canaan, which they expect to occupy,
after turning out the heathen who now cum
ber the ground there,", i
The Boundary Qukstion. It would appear
from the statements of the Bangor Whig, that
Governor Kent is determined to commence run
ning the Boundary Line ' between the State of
Maine and this Province, on the first of the en
suing month, as contemplated by the State Le
gislature, notwithstanding the subsequent ac
tion of Congress and the General Government
on the subject. We Know nut what stops will
betaken by the Cabinet at Washington in the
matter, but we feel convinced that so soon as
the surveying party from Maine enter the Dis
puted Territory, which, according to the un
derstanding between the British and American
Governments, is to remain under British juris
diction until the final settlement of the question
in dispute, they will be promptly met, and
dealt with as their presumption deserves.

Important if True. An officer of, the
Bteamboat Teche, states, that before that ves
sel left Natchitoches, a report reached there
and was generally credited, that the Indians
from the North had invaded Texas in a nume
rous and formidable body, and were driving the
wnoie population netore tnemm great conster
nation. The town of Nacogdoches had been
pillaged and burnt, and all the inhabitants dri
ven trom their homes. ' The alarming rumor
has its origin probably in some "inroad" of a
small war party upon the while settlements,
such as occur nearly every year. A". O. Com.
Will the gentlemen of the Budget whose

extract from the Providence Journal. . ", ,
"It is very gratifying to learn that the
Whigs, throughout the State, have generally
turned out in good strength at the late elec
tion. The result has been that, in many
towns, where the Loco Focos had made pre
parations to dispute the election of Represen
tatives, they were alarmed at the strong api
pear an ce ofthe Whigs, and made no opposi
tion. Such was the case in Warwick, in Smith
field, and in Johnston. There have been some
few changes the majority in the House will
be increased, and the Whiff maioritv in Grand

The 49 daughters of Danaus had a hard iob
in trying to fill a sieve with water, but the fel
low whose exploits are recounted in tho fol

asmuch as he had no one to assist him: '
Whoever has. seen a fishing smack' must
have noticed the well for keeping the fish ; it
is caulked around the sides but the bottom is
full of holes to keep the water in circulation
for the fish. An ambitious loafer, on Tuesday,
applied on board of one of these crafts and
bargained to bail her out for 75 cents. He
stripped for the job, and for an hour and a half
the admiring crowd were amused by his mar

Curious Coincidence. That the English
are a loyal people cannot be doubted.. A cur
ious compliment to the Sovereign is noticed in
the Literary Gazette, in which it is stated that
Mrs. Mortram, the cam sposa of a gentleman
residing near the Foundling Hospital, presen
ted her husband with a baby on the morning of
the day of George IV.'s coronation ; she did
the same on the morning pf William I V.'s; and
to crown all, she did the same on the morning
ofthe youthful Victoria's coronation day.
Very provoking to Mr. Mortram, no doubt,who
was thrice prevented seeing the procession, as
he conceived himself bound . in common decen

New Bankino Facilities. It will be recol

published a letter from New York, stating that
John Jacob Astor and J. Delafield, Esqrs. had
associated themselves under the late law of N.
Y. on the subject, for the establishment of a
new Bank. . This bank appears to be tho only
one which under that law, has yet gone into
operation. We have seen a bill drawn by J.
Delafield, broker, 14 Wall street, New York,
payable at the Banking Office of Delafield and

Reform the Banks! : We go for reform in

papers. This has been the ' burden of their
song' for the last six years. They have char-
tered an hundred or more hanks, and why have
they not chartered them according to the- re
form mode? :. Why have they not made the
stockholders responsible? -They- fashioned
these institutions with their own hands, and
why did they not make them to suit their own
improved notions? It is mere folly for the
friends and supporters tf the present adminis
tration to talk about their devotion and anxiety
tot bank reform. ; They are pretty much ' used

they cry 'reform the Banks.'. This to thqm

per bottle.: ' ' ',
;" As an internal remedy this medicine stands
unrivalled. Its fame and virtues are sufficient
ly established, by the' many and important
cures it has performed, in the short period it
has been in use. In marshy districts where
fevers more commonly prevail, its use will pre
vent their recurrence, and give to the system
a general healthy action. The quantity to be
taken, should be regulated so as to produces
free and regular discharge from the bowels,
which will give tone and activity to the stomach
and enable it f.o resist and eject all billious col
lection, and at the same lime restore a proper
and healthy secretionIt will arouse the inac
tivity of the liver, when affected, and restore it
to Us wonted healthful condition. As a family
medicine, when a purge is necessary for any
disease, nothing will be found better adapted to
tho system, than this Elixir. It purifies the
blood, without debilitating the stomach or
bowels, while it is perfectly mild and harmless
in its operations. . ...
" This medicine may be taken with perfect
safety by all ages in all diseases: its cures are
for the following diseases: Dyspepsia, Loss
of Appetite, Indigestion, Consumption, Coughs,
Dropsy, Heartburn, Diorrhea, Cholic, Jaundice
Palpitation of the Heart, Affection of the Li!
ver and the Skin, and all diseases' arising from
Impure Blood, &tc. and where there is any ir
regularity, arising from debility, it will be
found an invaluable medicine.
To each bottle will be attached a label bearing
the signature of the proprietor, without which
none are genuine." JOHN SALA.
Certificates: The following testimonials

to the Public.
From the Rev. E. Birkett, of the Pittthirgh
Mr. J. Sala, Dear Sir: I have given your
"Vegetable Elixir," a fair trial, and cheer
fully give my testimony to its value in ca
ses of Cramp, Cholic, and in Chronic af
fections of the internal viscera. . I have
been for more than two: yuars. severely
afflicted with an infection of the diaphragm,
which at times would cause derangement of
the functions of nature, and complete prostra
tion of strength. I had also frequent attacks
of cholic; some of them so severe that life it
self appeared to be in danger; but by the use
of your excellent medicine I find my chronic
symptoms much relieved, and am almost entire
ly free from those excruciating attacks of chol
ic; and I hope by pcrservance in its use to ob
tain a perfect cure. I have tried various me
dicines, and am prepared to say, that in all such
cases, I am satisfied it will be found superior
to any medicine now before the public :
