Col. Johnson said (in Congress")
"Who is General Harrison? The son of one of
ihe signers of the Declaration of Indepencence;
who spent the greater part of his large fortune in
redeeming the pledge he then gave, of his 'fortune,
life and sacred honor,' to secure the liberties of his
country. Of the career ttf General Harrison 1
need not speak; the history of the West is his his
tory. For forty years he has been identified wiih
its interests, its peiils and its hopes. Universal
ly beloved in the walks of peace, and distinguish
o"fl V,v hie nViilitv in ihp munHs nf his countrv. he
nas been yet more illustriously distinguished in
the field. During the late war, he was longer in
active service than any other general officer ; he
was, perhaps, oftener in action than any one of
-jhem, and never sustained a defeat"
We give on the first page instead of our usual
Historical sketches, tne excellent speecn delivered
by General Harrison at tne great Convention in
Dayton, Ohio, on the 10th of September last. The
enemies ot iteiorm wno nave siancerea mat vene
rable patriot, by asserting that he preserved a stud
ied silence, when requested to declare his- senti
ments on measures of public policy, that he was
General "Mum" and was in charge of a "thinkine
committee," now begin to chango their tune and
complain of his having shaken the "gag" from his
lips to spread before the peopl views of gov
ernment. Yerily these Loco-focos are exceeding
ly hard to please! We beseech our fellow-citizens
of all parties to read this speech with attention.
Gen. Harrison has solemnly pledged himself be
fore heaven and earth in the presence of one hun
dred thousand of his countrymen, that in the event
of his election,
He will serve but one TEaM.
He will use all his efforts to abridge the power
-of the President.
He will not permit the interference of office-hol-ders
He will nevertheless not prevent their casting
their vote, against himself and his measures if
He will not appoint his successor.
He will m allow the world to know who his fa
He will not continue the war against Credit.
He will not continue the war against Commerce.
He will not favor an exclusive specie currency
He will consult the good of the people and the

The election for Representatives in Congress
and Assembly on the 13th passed off within the
limits of Monroe co. , with scarcely any party con
test, the whole public interest being concentrated
on the choice of Commissioner, which resulted in
the defeat of the regularly nominated candidate of
the party, and the success of the volunteer John
Smith. It is due to truth to say, that this result
was owing to the dissatisfaction entertained by ev
ery one, with the course pursued by the Locofoco
delegate meeting, in nominating a candidate for
the office of Commissioner, an experiment which
we venture to say will not be repeated. The of
ficial returns are in another column.
We lately gave a Loco-foco estimate of the re
sults of the coming Election for President and
Yice President, and then promised to give our
own, which is herewith subjoined. We religious
ly believe, that " Old Tip" will do even better,
and that Martin Yan Buien will retire from the
seat ho has dishonored with a smaller vote, than
any other candidate, when there were but two in
New Jersey ,
We have to congratulate the Whigs of Monroe on
the brilliant returns of the State elections which
itiucu piaue in vruuryiitaiiu iuarj'iana, details
-of which will be found in another portion of this
paper. They are the more gratifying to all who

At the late Circuit Court held in this Town,
Judge Ford presided, Peter W. Blair, Jr., was
tried for forging endorsements on certain notes
lodged in the Banks in this Town. On three
indictments he pleaded guilty, and on the re
maining three not guilty. The trial on the lat
ter lasted a week, and on Wednesday evening
last, after a long consultation, the jury brought
him in guiliv, but warmly recommended him to
mercy. On Thursday, after Mr. Miller ad
dressed the Court in an impressive and feeling
manner in mitigation, tho Court sentenced him
to pay a fine of $1,500, with costs. From the
testimony, and other circumstances which trans
pired, it appeared that the endorsements were
forged with the intention of meeting the notes
when due and some df them were partially
paid off. He came into town on a Saturday
evening to take those tip to which he plead
guilty, but could not obtain them until Monday,
when the matter became public, and, scarcely
knowing what to do, he fled. Under the cir
cumstances the Court imposed a fine instead of

The principle of purifying the body by purg
ing with vegetable physic is becoming mote and
more understood as the only sensible method by
which sound health can be established. Hun
dreds of individuals have become conviuccd of
this doctrine, and are daily acknowledging the
practice to be the best ever discovered. Now
is the unhealthy season when our bodies are
liable to be affected with disease; and now is
tho time the state of the stomach and bowels
should be attended to, because on the healthy
stale of those organs depends the healthy state
of the general system; and every one will see it
once, if the general health be bad while that re
mains, local disease cannot be cured.
All the medicine that is requisite to restore
the body to a state of health is Brandrethfs Veg
etable Uiiiversal Pills, which have performed
cures upon thousands of helpless and hopeless
persons, after the, usual scientific skill of phy
sicians have consoled them with the assurance
that they could do no more. The properties of
these Pills as ahti-bihous and aperient medicine
are unrivalled; all who use them recommend
them, their virtues surpass all eulogy, and must
be used to be appreciated. The weak and del
icate will bo strengthenod by their use, not by
bracing but by removing the cause of weakness,
the gross and corrupt humors of the body.
They require no change in diet or care of any
kind. Plain directions accompany each box,
so that every one is his own competent physi
cian. Remember, none are genuine sold, by

Stagnation of the Blood.
The repeated changes in the atmosphere, by c-'

disordera. The blood from a state of heahii
becomes stagnant and is plunged into a state ol
Thus it loses its purity: its circulation is impe
ded; the channsh of life dft clogged; the bowels'ba
come costirc, and if not an immediate attack of
some malignant fever, headache, nausea, loas ut
appetite, and a general debility of the whole frame
are sure to follow.
It requires the tempost and the tornado to bring
about a state of purity in the ocean, when its wa
ters become stagnant; and it will require repeat
ed evacuation by the stomach and bowels before
the blood can be relieved of its accumulated im
purity; Brandrcth's Vegetable Universal Pih,

these humors which are the cause of stagnation.

What is that we call tho Constitution 1 The

and that which constitutes is the blood. We, there
