Knownothingism among the Romans.

of the first to retort to the oaths and the
pledget, tha clandestine nee rings and
midnight cabali, which ate the ftionte
cipedieatt of '.he prennl secret ami pro-
criplite political part. Not only did
ha plot tbe overthrow of the State, but
ha resolved, in ordar tie a. ore fatally to
accomplish thia, that Rome should be
deluged in the blood of her eiottemiu
ent sona. la thost days, however, there
were 001 wanting patriots and states
men, who resisted, eiposeJ end punish
ed these horrible rites end these inhu
man machinations; sod altuough the
arch traitor attempted, by simulating
his secret purposes, aud by issuming sn
air of injured innocence, to baffle; the
iuexorsble scrutiny of his patriotic op
.orients, ret he could not escape the elo
quence and vigilenct of such fathers ol
the republic ss Cicero of Arpinum, snd
Marcus Forties Cato. liight sfter night
saw ihe conspirators sssembls. No cue
was admitted into the recesses of their
debiting orgies until ha bad given him
self up bod sod soul to their obliga
tions and tbsii object. The oath wis
taken and then sealed in a draught of
blood. How far this secret Older ex
tended, snd what disguise it nourished,
can best ba described dy directing from
the great oration of Cicero against Cat
Mine: Review with ma new the transac
tions of tbe night before last, so shall
tbon understand that I watch far more
vigilantly fox the safety than thou for
tbe destruction of ths State. I say that
on that former eight thou didst go to
tbe street of the scythe makers; I will
apeak plainly, to the house tf Marcus
Leers; that thou didst there meet miny
of thy associates in crime end mid nets.
Wilt tho dare to deny itt Whysoei
lentl If thon ieniest, 1 will prove it!
For I see some of those here here in
the Senatewho were with you. Oh!
ye immortal Gods! In what region of
the earth do wa dwell? In what city do
re lite? of what republic are we citi
tens? Here! they are here, in the midst
of ns, Conscript Fathers; here in this
council, the most most sacred, the most
solemn of the universal world, men are
plsdniog the slaughter of myself, the
slaughter of you all, planning the ruin
of thia City. I, (ho consul, see tfiete
men, and ark their opnion on State mat
ters, How test, therefore, in the house
of Laces, on that night, oh, Catiliue!
thou didst allot the districts of Italy;
thou didst determine whether each ol
thy followers should set forth;thou didst
choose whom thou wouUUt lead along
with thte, whom leave behind, tho'didbt
assign the wards of the city for conflag
ration, thou didst Bftert that erelong
thou wouldst go forth in person; tho'j
laidst there was but one cause why thou
shouldst yet delay a little, and that was
because 1 wm alive."
We seed scarcely point out the posi
tions of this extract which besi upon
the present secret order in this republic
republic which bids fair to outetrp
Rome in conferring real advantages upon
the race. That order does not, it is true,
select citizens for murder, nor set apart
cilisi for the flames. Cut it marks out
its vietims for disfranchisement. It
dooms those who were born on another
toil. It hunts down those who profess
a particular religious creed. Thus,
though it may not take life, it robs both
adopted citizen and native-born Catho.
lie of that which makes life dear in such
a land as this. Precisely as Catiline
nd bis conspiratora took part among
those whom they had secretly pointed
out for assassination, do the members of
this new order mingle with and pretend
to adhere to other organizations? In a
word, they arrange a scheme in private,
and then go out and meet their proscrib
ed fallow-citiaens with a smile. They
even deny the outrage they have sworn
to consumate. They swear to men that
they are not identified with, an order
which they had previously swern to God
to maintain and obey, If the Roman
order was a more cruel, and a more bar
barous one than its American imitation,
the latter is so reckless, revengeful, and
profligate in carrying out its own shame
" How many Catilinea have we in this
ae w order? Thidileu's Stephens.of Tenn
sylvsnia, whose whole career in public
life is too familiar that we should re
capitulate it; John P. Hale of New
Hampshire,' who is committed to undy
ing war upon tbe constitution of bis
country these are fitting chiefs of
know-nothingism, and fitting copies of
a depraved original.
Catiline was full of professions of
patriotism, snd full of ardent attach
ment for Rome! He was eo devoted to
his country that he wanted to kill off
her ravarned and devoted sons, so that
he might have her to himself alope.
His speech before the great battle, as
preserved by Sallust, ihvokaa his troops
to light against his country by appeals
in her favor! 'Remember,' he said, 'ye
carry wealth, honor, glory, moreover,
liberty and your country.' Cato and
Cicero, whose name have tome down to
tht present day clothed in immortal ;e
sown, were among tbe worn-out politi
ians'.bat Catiline abbored. He sought
to buia up a new party on the basis of a
secret order, to expel the best citizens
from tbe posit Lous they adorued, and to
Blithe highest places with a horde of
inexperisnced and abandoned men. We
oead not pursue the subject to the irre
sistible conclusions and comparisons
.which must suggest themselves to all

very few are tbe diaeoara in which a PurgariTe Medi

No person can feel well while, avcostive habit f
body prevails ; besides it soon generates serious and
often fatal diseases, which might have been avoided
br the timely and judicious use of a good purgative.
Tint is alike true of Cold, Feverish symptoms, and
Bilious derangement. They all tend to become or
produce tho deep seated and formidable distemper
which load the hearses all over the land, lleutaa
reliable family physic is of the first importance to
the publie health, and this Pill ha been perfected
with consummate skill to meet that demand. Aa
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profes
sors, and Patient, baa shown result surpassing
any thing hitherto known of any medicine. Cure
hart been effected beyond belief, were they not sub
stantiated by persons of such exalted position and
abaracter as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Among the many eminent gentlemen who hat
testified in favor of these Pillt, w may mention :
Da. A. A. U avis, Annlytieal Chemist, of Boston. .
and State Asunyer of Massachusetts, whose high
professional character is endorsed by the
Hon. Edward Evzhbtt, Senator of the V. S.
Koheht C.WrxTiiKOP, Ex-Speaker of th House
Abhott Lawuemcb, Minister Plen. to England,

Hotel, and other.
Did spac permit, we eonld civ many hundred
certificates, from all part where th Pills hat
been used, but evidence even more convincing than
tha experience of eminent publio men is found
in their effects anon trial.
These Pills, the result of long Investigation anil
study, are offered to the publio as th best and
most complete which th present state of medical
scienc can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves, but of ths medicinal virtue
only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical
process in a state of purity, and combined together
id such a manner as to insure the best result. This
system of composition for medicine has been found
in tbe Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by any process. Th reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by the old mode of composition, ev
ry medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
monious and injurious qualities, by (hi each indi
vidual virtue only that is denred for the eurutivs
fleet is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed are left behind, tha
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it i
solf-etident tha effects should prove as they have
proved more purely remedial, and the Pill surer,
more powerful antidote to disease than any othet
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medlclsa
hould be taken under tho counsel of an attending
Physician, and as ha could not properly judge of a
remedy without knowing it composition, I have
supplied the accurate Formula by which both my
Pectoral and Pills are mado to the whole body of
Practitioner in the United States and British Amer
ican Provinces. If however thcr should be any
on who has not received them, they will b
promptly forwarded by mail to hi address.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how
few would be taken if their composition was known I
Their life consists in their mystery. I hav m
The composition of my preparations Is laid open
to ail men, and all who ore competent to judge on
the subject freely acknowledge their convictions (
of their intrinsio merits. Tho Cherry Pectoral wa
pronounced by scicntiflo men to be a wonderful
medicine before its effects were known. Many em
inent Physicians hav declared tho same thing of
my Pills, and even moro confidently, and are will
ing to certify that their anticipations wer mora
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on th
internal vinccra to purify the blood and stimulate it
into healthy action remove the obstructions of
the stomach, bowels, liver, and other orgitns of th
body, restoring their irregular action to health, aud
by correcting, wherever they exist, such utnun;
tnems as are the first origin of disease.
Being sugar wrapped they are pleasant to talis,
and being purely vegetable, no harm can ar.'i trosa
their use in any quantity.
