g I am now supplying tite trade with pure Cog

forts to place a pure Giu within the reach of all, un
der the same of Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps, and l chi
to drive out of the narket the pernicious compounds Vi
mold as Gin throughout the country, led many lead- p
ig druggists,apotshrcariee and medical men, for some
yearn past, to solicit me to pursue the same sourse it
regard to the article of Brandy. I should have com
plied with these requests from all quarters loug ago, of
but was deterred front it by the fact, that owing to
theexhorbitant prices of Brandy in France, conse
quent upon the shurtness of the grape crop for some
years, there was no chance of my being able to imn- jJ
port the choicest Bsandy, bottle it and sell it at mod
erate prices. Fortunately for me, the grape crop for
the last and previous year (and the prospect for this)
was hadboat, and prices of jrandy have fallenl to at
the standard often years ago. The duty on Itrandy de
is seventy per cent lower, auldl have now made ar- t
rangements with four Brandy exporters in '"rance, of jo
the highest repute, and ait regularly receiving eon- dr
signments of the beat Cogaac Brandy, which I am th
bottling and selling as Wolfe's Genuine Cognac
trandy. I guarantee with my seal, labels and certi- be
ficates, the Brandy so bottled by me, as the pure, un- ti
adulterated article, and it will be fluad, when used s
as a inedecine, a beverage, or a cordkl, healthful of
andinvigorating. It has bees a metter of aniversal

r The approachiniltg Presidential contest pt
has bro(ugiht Iefute the, c,luntry the a
r n.nes of illany statesmelln of vast abili- p
, ties aTid of Inttu'h mral worth and inttt'g- si
rity. Such names give evidence of the
tnerease of solid abilities and of states- tl
d teen altonlg us--that as our country in- u
,- crses, in extent and her resources are Ii
' devel,,petl, just in prolrttion does our s
a talent griw up to protect and to further
dctvclp, it. Prominent among those ;
whose lllaes are inelitiuned, stands the I,
name of Jno. Slidell, U. S. Senator from f
Ltuisitna. The use of his name in con- s
naetion with that position has induced tl
me to examine his clainms for it, and in r
so doi,,. I shall be brief. No one will v
deny to Mr. Slidell abilities far above n
the general average; his political stand- f
igg.aud his control over men indicate ti
Sthi Ile superadds to his reputation as c
sa statesman, that of a profound lawyer, i
ddeeply versedl ill the law, well guarded p
at every point to repel the adversary's s
thrust. A practice of a quarter of al1
century in Loumsiana has familiarizedI1
him with the great principles of the
w, Civil Law; and to make the most of it, t
his law opiniots are enltirltd toas much
respect as those of any hltvyer in the
olton, whether in Common, Civil or Con
do stitutioual law-this is an admitted fact.
- I believe he has retired from the prac- I
ill tice ,itt tuhe truth is not jeopardised by i
presuming that he keeps up with the I
g wurcrit of decisions. If his love of the
IayL did not justify such a course, cer
tilnly his re.putation as a statesman
, would, so as to, be prepared. We know
he 4at the tmost successfulll Generals are
Sthose who are ever ready for a contin- I
oa gency. Ooccupying then, a seat in the
t I. . enate and having sustained him
self with so mulch ability in sutch asn ar
ay of intellect, his vilest enemy will
give hiM credit of being among the
tve Success is generally a good test of
ermerit-the exceptions are few. I do(
' not mean the suceea~er hich results from
the sudden'l anti unexpected accomplish
ves iwent of some great event, such as may
ns. .prit f'roti a brain inspired Iy the ge
ion nits of the inuoent, but of success
Swhich results front patient, laborious in
- vestir:ti n, from dpcc study; and with
al frowm a miind like nature, pruogressivt
co|illetrs everything susceptible of be
the inlu ,ovtrCott'c alld combating that most
"at intensely which resists most fiercely.
-* TMe( powecr that can do this is lefilced by
and Locke to be a geinius-aud none knew
old better than Mr. Locke-bein;g that gift
the which enables the mind to see every side
of the subject and to understand it fully
S-*-such a mind is indeed a gem. It is
.ER. necessary that I should refer to so great
.. an authority to illustrate my meaning
and to support it. Mr. Slidell's mind is
of that peculiar order and has every es
sential requisite. lie alaborates his
hr thewe well-he dissects it skilfully, so
t that its parts may be understood by ev
sin cry shade of intellect. He has been
m .succensful. In all his deeply laid
- cdhbmes for power and plac ie t has a
ket. werthy ambition which of course, weld
men,, i&d to a powerful mind, has centered his
eir powers to a single focus and matter
B must yield. I speak of him in all the
it Ii,,,rablu relations of life. The rays
of a strong itndn and the dictates of a
noble amlbiion coneentrated on a single
ich object will enove every obstacle. And
to this there must be juigment, calm,
rite solid, contemnplative, knowing how much
1 power to apply and when to apply it.-
IToo much may destroy, too little fail to
accomplish. This intuition becomes (,of
great valnoue whleu applied to men. It
teachles who are to be followers andl
I where to place sentinels, for the :!ame tf
politics requires rules as stric as evter
son were cnt'c'ced by a military tribunal.-
tile,t In matters of finance also Mr. Slidcell has
MO- exhibited wonderful ltwcrs of intellect,
d to and in this department the has also been
he successful Such rare and wonderful
r Ity combinatiins of talents are seldtom met
ir.d- i with and when his whole political life
I i0s- bro'ught within the range uf th:u eyt's
ssi singlu glance it tells that he has greatt
Sadministrative c:apacity. Conml,ie the
l qualdities I have meontione4 and you will
I perceive that there remain but two ele
s ment to haronize the mass, intrity
of cbeactr and inenlbility of ile-.
I. Of the former I need not speak. His
election by a sovereign State puts a ne
gative at rest, and of the latter it suffi
cs to say, that no man in the pursuit of
au object, after surmounting all diflicul
tics and overthrowing all opposition,
treating with this faction, and by a
stroke of diplomacy adjusting matters
with that, could be devoid of decision tc
It is then evident, that in a mental
point of view he possesses every ele
ment for a President, endorsed by thu
characteristic features of his life, which
stand out strong, bold, and patriotic.
In a political point of view he is accep
table, because he is of the Democratic

I assume that the Union will not be
dismenmbered within the next four years,
and taking that for a basis I shall pre
mise by saying that an unexceptionable
man should be nominated for the double
purpose of quelling the present strife
and around whom we can all gather and
preserve the ancient dignity of the po
M. Slidell cannot be objectionable on
the score of his Democracy, for he isono
of the strongest supporters of that creed.
Indeed his acts and course have in no
small degree contributed to that party,
much of the present power it has. IHo
has impressed his mark upon it byrigid
ly enforcing its rules and principles.
Parties which have good principles
sometimes become extinot because of
the failure to enforce them-and even a
rigid enforcement of them will not al
ways insure success, because people
may tire of them. But it is a settled
fact, that in National and State politics,
the Democratic party now has the best
code of principles. They are abused it
is true-gold is often used for unholy
purposes,.suclh as bud ing murder or ar
a son-but in the hands of honest men it
harmonizes society. So with politics.
When honest men desire the peace ad
welfare of the country, they inculcate
the best doctrines.
The position of the President is a
very exalted one. No one but a man
full of wisdom and virtue should hold it.
And it is doubtful whether any one is
tit for it, whose hairs have not frosted
in the winter of experience. No rash
hand should clutch the helm of State.-
Here are thirty millions of people to
protect--very want and every taste to
be suited-while jealousy sits on for
eign shores ready to satiate her pesuion
in our downfall. Compared to Mr. Sli
dell, many of his comrades in the race
fall short of the standard. They neith
er have the experience nor ability.
- Some are exceptionable because of their
pecwuliar views which are at war with
e the leading ideas of the party-hence
creating a schism in the ranks which
f may at times be diMcnlt to heal-such
