when they were jrostratd in the dust;
when their energies and means had
all been exhau-ted; when our vietori
ous armiies traversed their country in
every direction, and their beautitul
capitol itself was in our hands; whenl
Mexico lay under our feet, bleeding at
every pore, this was the treaty we
forced upon her. And the question
now is, shall we screen ourselves from
the obligations of that, treaty by a mere
play of words? On such a play of'
words as the rmemuber thon Missouri
(Mr. Benton) used yesterday, that we
were not bound to extend to them
any more protection than we had ex.
tended to our own citizens ; that we
had shown no energy or zeal in protect.

under obligations to bestow no more in
protecting the people of Mexico. Why,
sir, has it conic to this, that we shall
use our own wrong to relieve ourselves
from the obligations of treaties'? Has
it come to this, that we shall use our
own want of duty to our own citizens
as a reason why we should :ot, do a
duty which wej bound ourselves by
treaty to perform to a foreign nation,
and a weak and defenceless nation,
over which we had triumphed ? I an
against that sort of morality. I would
not learn morality in such a school.
I say these words bind us, in the
strongest way in which language can
bind us, to have protected the border
provinces of Mexico. And if we have
litiled to do so-a fact about which
there is no disput. -then we are bound
to mnako indemnity. We should put

they would have been had we perform.

what I contend for. I weild performi

This preparation is getting into use all over
our Country. The numerous letter, we re-"
ceive from our various Agents, informing us of
cures elected in their immediate neighb opds
warrant us in saying it is one of the bsstj if
not the very beat Cough Medicine now before
the public. It almost invariably relieves and
not unfrquently cures the very worst casegs.
When all other Cough preparations have fail
ed, this has relieved the patient, as Druuits,
dealers in med.cines,and Physicians can testi
fy. Ash the Agent in your nearesttown, what
has been his experience of the effects of this
Medicine. If he has been selling it for any
length of time he will tell you.
IT IS THE BEST MEDICINE EXTRACT.
Below we give a few extracts from letters -
we have received lately regardh g the virtues
of this medicinc.
Dr. S. S. Oslin, of Knoxville, G., says-.
f hate been using your Liverwort and Tar very
.rtensirely in my practice for three years pe,
'nd, it is with pleasure I state my belief r its
Ruperiority over all other articles with wkidke l
2m acquainted,for which it is recommended.
Messrs. Fitzgerald & lenners, writing front
Waynesville . C. say:-" TheLiverweort and
Tar is becoming daily more popular in this Coun
try, and we think justly so. AU who have tried
it speak in commendable terms ejit, and say it
svery beneficial in alleviating the complaintsfor
which it as recommended."
Our Agent in Pickens District, S. C. Mr. S..
I. McFall, assures us " that he uses it wit geat'
enef t In his own family, and recommends it to
his neighbors." He gives an instant of a Neg -
woman., in his vicinity, who had been suffe rng
with disease of the Lungs for many years at
ended with severe cough, who was relieved
,y the Liverwort and Tar.
Such are the good reports we hear of this
lledicine from all parts of the South. For a
report of the surprising cures it has performed
n the Western and Northern and Ea tern
States, we would invite the sufering patient to
ced the pamphlet which accompanies each
bottle. To all, we say, have hope, have hope !
