A VOLUNTARY Wl I N Ess FOR
John Van Valkenbur'gb, Eq., writes
to Dr. Jayne, Spt 2Sth, lStb', and says:
I would cheerfully accept of an agency for
the sale of vour family Medicines, because
I feel 8ti?fied, ihat if I h ul - n t. taken
your Expectorant ,I should before this

month of August. 1845 I had a vrrv se
vcro attack of Vy phus .Fever and Infiama
tisn iif my Lung-, which reduced me very
low. In a few days alter my fever left
me and I began to gain Mieng'h; I had a J
bad cough and raised large quantities of;
matter from my lungs or stomach. As!
my strength increased, my rough also
increased. I lold my phtsician that I
wanted to lake your Expectorant. He
thought it was not beh
He made me sme.syr.npifor my cough,
which I took fcfiwrjnr three weks. but
it did me no good. My cough iiiill in
creased so much that my stom ich and
lungs felt as if thev were all raw, there
was u?h a soreness.' I raided a verv large
amount, and it appeared to md that I was
as b id off as many people I have sfrn in
the last stages of consumption, and th t I
could not live but a short time. I there
j fore determined to hp mv own phvlcian.
I sent to Cast kill for half a dozen bottles of
your Expectorant, and commenced taking
it, and in less than twenr-fonr hours there
was quite a change in my feelings, and
before I had taken two boitjes of it, 1 was
restored to my usual health.'
I sold two or three bottles of it to a lady
in this plae. -,She has. told me, wiihin

BY MRS. Lm. H. . 5 1(3 0 U R N E Y.
H-Aftxh.3 world. of cares,-, . ,
But, gives his children each a farm,
. Enough for them and theirs,
Full thirty we!! grown jsons has. he,
A numerous race indeed,
Married and settled, all, d'ye see,
With boys and girls-to feed.
And if we wisely till our lands,
We're sure to earn a living,
And have a penny, too, to spare,
For spending, or for giving.
A thriving family are. we,
No lordling need deride us,
For we know hpvy to use our hands,
;And in our wits we pride usj
Hail, brothers, hail,
Let nought on earlh divide us.
Some of us dare the shtrp north-cast,
Some, clover fields are mowing; '
And others tend the cotton plants,
That keep the looms agoing.
Some build and steer the white-winged
And few in speed can mate them;
While others rear the com and wheat,
Or grind the flour to freight them.
And if our neighbors o'er the sea,
Have e'er an empty larder,
To send a loaf their babes to cheer,
We'll work a little harder.
No old nobility have we,
No tyr.int king to ride us;
Our Sages in the Capitol,
Enact the laws that guide us.
Hail, brothers, liiTri, '
Let nougnt on earth divide us.
Some faults we have we can't deny,
A foible here and there;
But other households have the same,
And so, we'll not despair.
'Twill do no good to fume and frown,
And call hard names you see,
And 'twere a burning shame to part,
So fine a family.
Tis but a waste of time to fret,
Since Nature made us one.
For every quarrel cuts a thread,
That healthful love has spun.
So draw the chords of union fast)
Whatever may bcti'dc us.
And eloser cling through every blast,
For many a storm has tried us.
Hail, brothers, hail, ,
Let nought on earth divide us!
Arista was a tailor's gose,
To pun 'pon Taylor's nitme,
For Taylor's measures all, it seems,
Are -oquent of tame.
He sews them up, he fells them down,
He cuts them into bits,
And though his charges are severe,
He gives them perfect fits. '
From the Union.

But,,we'miist confess, he defined his po-1 vindicate the'eharacter of Our countrymen
sition very little to our satisfaction. It
turns out that Mr.l Calhoun is . as : much
opposed to the war as he was at firsthand
that he still standsup fdr a defensiveline,
instead of adopting the planxtf a -vigorous
prosecution of the war. We regret his
I course. There were hopes that he would
support the war and the administration.
But he is decidedly opposed to its ener
getic prosecution, and to the plans "which
the President and the Secretary of War
have proposed, and which the great body
of the officers and of the people appear- to
approved v-it - -.,.! ? 'n -. r-1.'
t Mr.; Calhoun assailed the . position of
thejadministratibn' in vain. : He defended
his own defensive line .tvith nO" greater
succesMhan, he obtained at the last session.
He neither showed that it was a f cheaper
mode of carrying on the war, nor a more
efficient ..nieans .otsecur ing a peace. , t
, .There was, one chimera which affected
the whole. of his. argument. He is alarm,
cd at the prospect of annexing the whole
of Mexico to the United. States, with a
population of seven or eight millions of
people, who are unfit to participate in the
benefits of our free institutions. The
President has particularly disclaimed such
a scheme. No member of Congress has
avowed it. There is not the slightest
prospect of its accomplishment for years
to come, if ever. There is no, danger of
our grasping the whole; of Mexico as our
arms subdue the different States or cities.
There is not the slightest fear of our offi:
ccrs or troops acting upon their own. im.?.
pulses, and presuming to dictate a new line
of policy to their.government. No men
were ever more obedient to the laws un
der which thej' serve, and less willing to
exchange their own country for the valleys
or mountains of Mexico. ? - '
The President has declared his anxiety
to maintain the nationality of Mexico.
He is as little, disposed to blot Mexico
from the map of the world asMr. Calhoun
himself. We are happy to hear Mr. C.
admitting that we must have tenitorial in
demnity; but he does not chalk out the
11 t t .!
line wiucli won ul satisiy him. JLast ses
sion he would havo been content with
New Mcvk-o and California, and we lake t -
for gmntcd that he wotld ask as much,
not more, ?ww than he did then.
But he objects to a vigorous prosecution
of the war for effecting this object. No
thing suits the senator, except the , defen
sive line his old system ofmasterlv in-'
activity. Bat is there,' a military man in
thb nation who expects to secuie this line,
arv.1 obtain a permanent peace, without
great expense of . men and of money-
without procrastinating the war to an in
definite period and . without forfeiting
most of the military advantages which ,we
must derive from an aggressive .war? It
is idle to talk of "masterly inactivity" in
a war with such a people. We should be
compelled to wage a war constantly at
some point or other with them. Who
believes that wc shall sooner obtain a peace
bv yielding nearly all the advantages ihat
we. have. won? by surrendering. the capi
tal, and Vera Cruz, arid all tb'e central ter
ritory wc now hold, and retiring to a line
of ml! hary posts? Mr. Calboun" is " anx
ious to '''disentangle"
; ' -' ' . . f
ourselves Irom this
war; but how is he. to effect it. by the sys
tern which he supports? The war must
go on. It takes twp parlies (as lia,' says)
to make a peace; butakirid iiidem nlty.';

not amount to a treaty with Mexico.1; On 1
the contrary, the abandonment of our cen-!
