Ho.v. SAMUEL YORE, President.
Joseph B. Jones,
John King, Esq. (
Joseph Weaver, Esq. J
James A. Rice, ) 0 . .
Reuben Nolf, Secretaries.

H. D. Maxwell, P. S. Michler, Anthony
Transue, Jacob Dech, William Engle, Jacob
Odcnwelder,Geo. Barnet, George Knecht,Con
rad RoTer, Esq. Lawrence Troxell.
The Committee retired, and A. E. Brown
was called upon to address the meeting, which
he did in a clear and forcible manner.
The committee having returned, presented
the following Preamble and Resolutions, which
were unanimously adopted.
Whereas, the time is rapidly approaching
when we will be called upon to exercise that
rigni, which a reeman holds most dear, the
right of suffrage, in again choosing a Chief Ma
gistrate, to preside over the destinies of this
Republic. And whereas it is incumbent upon
us, to do so, with an eye single to the welfare,
the honor, and the glory of our country.
Therefore, Resolved, That we will not sup
port for the Presidency, Martin Van Buren, be
cause we consider the course he has pursued,
since his Election, to be Anti-Republican, and
opposed to the best interests of our country.
Resolved. That we oppose his favorite meas
ures "the Sub Treasury," because we consider
it fraught with danger to our prosperity, and
"the standing Army'' because it is a stab at our
liberties, and "both" for the plain reason, that
we believe them unfit for a free country, and
only suited to monarchies of Europe, by the
Kings of which, they were recommended to him.
Resolved, That we oppose Martin Van Bu
ren because he is a Politician from interest a
lone, a Democrat only so Ions as he could ob
tain office, but a Federalist, when his counUy
called her sons to arms, and his coward heart
would not let him rally in her defence, but fright
ened him into the ranks of the Federalists of
1812, to the support of Clinton, and, to oppose
Resolved, That we will support for the high
est office in the nation's gift the oft honored and
war worn patriot of the West, Gen. W. H. Har
bison, the greatest part of whose life has been
devoted to the honor and profit of his country.
Resolved, That we wish, and we ask no bel
ter pledge of his future conduct, if elected, than
we can obtain from his past life and actions, and
-we would refer his puny slanderers to the testi
mony of Col Johnson, who said the History of
the? West, is the history of Gen. Harrison, he
has for 40 years been identified with its inter-
ests, its perils, and its hopes.
Resolved, That the paltry attempts of design
ing politicians, to cast upon Gen. Harrison, the
stigma of Federalism, can have no effect upon
us, when we consider the source from which it
comes, that of an amalgamated mass of Loco
Foco orators, who have been themselves warm
and bitter Federalists and done like their mas
ter, all they could to oppose the cause of De
Resolved, That we wish no better proof of
his Democracy than the fact, that he was twice
appointed to office by Thomas Jefferson, and
three times by James Madison
Resolved, That we are opposed to Martin
Van Buren, because he in the convention of
New York, to reform the constitution, voted for
a Property qualification for voters, which would
Jiave deprived the poor man of a right to vote,
and he also voted to give to negroes the right to
vote, provided they possessed the amount of
property required, thus placing the negro above
die poor white man.
Resolved, That we will support no person
for Congress unless he is opposed to Martin
Van Buren and his intended new national Tax
Resolved, That we will support no man for
the State Senate, or Legislature unless he is
opposed to the course of the party in power
who are ruining our slate, by increasing our
Debt, and imposing upon us a heavy and unjust
Resolved, That our sister countiesof Monroe,
Pike and Wayne be requested to appoint con
ferees to meet conferees to be appointed, by our
delagates at the house of Samuel Straub in Bath,
on the 22d day of September next, to nominate
z. suitable person to represent this Congression

Resolved, That our Sister County of Lehigh
he requested to appoint conferees to meet con
ferees to be appointed by our delegates, at the
same place as mentioned in the foregoing reso
lution, to nominate a Senator to represent this
Senatorial District in the Senate of Pennsylvana.
Resolved, That the Delegates to be chosen,
at the coming Delagate elections meet at the
inn of Samuel Slraub in Bath, on Tuesday the
22d day of September next.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meet
ing be published in the Northampton Whig, Le

amusing ahfecdote is related of
tlielocofoco candidate for

the pepple, and in the course of his re
marks denied with great vehemence
the eastance of "hard limes" declar-
to be a whig fabrication, &c.
iupon, an honest citizen, who
ben listening with great atten
tion, ipse and addressing himself to
the speaker, said, " Sir, since you de
ny positively that the times are not
hard, trust you will pay me the
thousand dollars you have owed me
so long." I have frequently demand
ed it, but your constant plea has been

AN AMERICAN SUMMER,
The Weather and its effects. One day we have
90 degrees of heat in the shade; the next 50. Thus,
one day the perspiration is streaming from every
pore ; the next day all are nearly closed. Even
those who have a healthy disposition of body, are
subject to sickness under these circumstances.
Therefore to prevent any danger, we ought care
fullv to guard against a COSTIVE STATE OF
OUll BOWELS. Once or twice they must be
evacuated in 524 hours. If this is not effected
naturally, medicine must be resorted to BRAN
DRETH'S PILLS must be taken: then there will
be no danger- Do not think Uiat even a daily use
of these Pills will weaken or debilitato 1 They do
not. On the contrary, the functions of the stomach
are restored, the bowels cleansed and strengthen
ed; the appetite and digestion improved. And
common sense tells us wc are better able to with
stand continued heat, or sudden changes than we
should be, were wc oppressed by a load of impure
humors in the blood, always the occasion of every
variety of disorder. Often a sudden dysentery
occurs. Should there bo a cause for this, and it
does not take place, then, the blood is made the
receiver of those humors, which should have been
discharged by the bowels. Undor these circum
stances, which may be known by exceeding diiow
siness, and great fatigue on the least exertion,
vegetable purging must be immediately and ener
getically practised, or these humors form a lining
or deposite in the bld'od vessels which may pro
duce epilepsy, apoplexy, consumption, &c. Ac
It must be, however, borne in mind that even in
dysentery and disorders of the bowels, that BRAN
DETH'S PILLS aro indispensable. They re
move those peccant humors which produce these
affections, before they have time to produce gan
grene or any other fatal effect.
Sometimes the blood is so loaded with humors
that it becomes in a fermentation, being that state
of the body called fever, which is nothing more
than an effort of nature to throw off all offending
matters. This is, in fact, a call upon Reason, to
assist the natural functions with purging medicine,
which, if properly answered, will soon evacuate
these foul humors, and restore the body to a state
of perfect health.
It is at all times easier to prevent than to cUre
disease, because by taking a preventive couse wo
do not debilitate the natural functions of the body,
but rather strengthen and assist them. The pe
culiar action of
Brandretltis Vegetable Universal Pills,
is to cleanse the blood from all impurhies, remove
every cause of pain or weakness, and
PRESERVE THE CONSTITUTION
in such a state of health and vigor so that .casual
changes cannot effect it.

the sale of his Pills, is 241, Bjoadway, oppo
